      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!

Wilderness Permits at Muir?

Recommended Posts

I am planning on doing a training hike up to Muir pretty soon, and maybe want to camp there for a night. I know I only need to get a wilderness permit since I'm not climbing past Muir, but are these permits limited? Or do I just show up to the RS in Longmire and get one?

If you want to go on a weekday, there's a good chance you won't have a problem but yes it is limited. If you want to go on a weekend, I've had reservations rejected even a month in advance for Muir in peak season on a weekend.


You can usually get a permit for Muir Snowfield which ends something like 1000 feet below Camp Muir, nobody wants to be there but it could be ideal for a training hike, might even be more pleasant than Muir since you wouldn't be with hundreds of climbers making noise all night.
