      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

[TR] Mt Rainier Single Day Push - Paradise to Ingraham Flats 7/13/2013

Trip: Mt Rainier Single Day Push - Paradise to Ingraham Flats

 

Date: 7/13/2013

 

Trip Report:

SImply beautiful!!

 

This is my first time going further from Camp Muir..so you could say i am a beginner so I am training for Mt. Rainier in the next couple weeks. So if your disappointed to see a training report instead of a summit report oh well, you may learn something.

 

 

Me and my fellow climbers are busy on the weekdays so we used our day that we had to do a hard push from Paradise to Ingraham Flats in a single day. Less then 12 hours up and back.

 

Made it to Muir in under 4 hours which is my personal best. I keep cutting time off which is good! A bit nervous and intimidating when i was putting on my harness and helmet and roping up but i was glad to be finally doing it.

 

Beautiful views, sunny day, and barely no wind!

Gear Notes:

Approach Notes:

Follow boot pack up to Muir. Register with the climbing rangers at paradise before you go over onto the glacier
