      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Rainier in May?

The changes I was thinking of would be something more along the lines of wanting to do Gib Ledges, seeing it's out of condition when recon-ing above Muir, then deciding to do Ingrahm Dir. instead.


But, like you said, chances are there would be a ranger at Muir to speak with.

If that's all you're talking about, then yeah, it should be easy to just walk on over and talk to a ranger and they can log the change for you so you're all good. Enjoy your trip, and write a TR and post it here when you're done. We're always stoked to hear first-timer's impressions of "our" mountains. And take lots of pics... :)


Oh, and I get the :pagetop: W00t-w00t, that's two already this morning!

Haha, will do! Thanks again for our insight. I need to get my Hood TR put up from last June. Absolutely nothing special, typical slog route, but there was a pro photog around shooting the Reach the Summit group and he took some incredible night shots.

When my partner and I were up to Muir to climb the ledges route last June 4th we thought we might want to camp an extra night (unscheduled). I went up to the hut and the Rangers were very accommodating, NP he says, just stay over if ya want. It was pretty busy at Muir too. Lot's o people doing the DC...


We ended up climbing the ledges in the dark (left Muir at 0100) so didn't get any pics which I regret cuz there were some really nice hero shots on that route then... The old memory will have to be good enough.


Last year was a pretty exceptional snow year, this year may not be so the ledges route will be quite different I suspect.


good luck
