      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!

Lost Tent Poles on Emmons / Interglacier

Recommended Posts

While descending Mount Rainier on Sunday 6/14, a green bag containing tent poles for a Hilleberg Nallo 2 was dropped somewhere between Camp Schurman (9500 ft) and the toe of Interglacier (6700 ft). The route we took from Schurman descended the lower Emmons before crossing over to Interglacier around 8800 ft. We then descended on the Interglacier side of the ridge to a minor notch on the ridge, just southwest of Mount Ruth, around 8600 ft. (This notch is lower than Camp Curtis.) We took a short break at this notch and then continued down to the toe of Interglacier (6700 ft), passing prominent rocky outcroppings in the central glacier on the west side.


My guess is the poles are most likely at the notch near Ruth (or the snow on/around it), or else somewhere on Interglacier below this notch. This area gets a pretty decent amount of traffic so hopefully if the poles are there someone will see them. A lone trekking pole (silver/yellow/green in color, if I recall) might also be found nearby the tent poles.


If found, please respond here and/or pm me.
