7:00 AM at MRNP Carbon River Entrance. Note that this is not the new ranger station.  A Mount Rainier National Park Pass is required.

Preference will be given to Tacoma students. Get in an early conditioner while knocking off an Irish Cabin Peak and possibly Sweet Peak as well depending upon conditions. Students will need to carry a pack weighing the greater of 25 pounds or 20% of their body weight while keeping up with the group. A scale will be available and used at the trailhead. We will meet at the Carbon River Entrance. There is limited parking at the Carbon River entrance so carpooling is recommended. If conditions are poor, we may change the destination to either Mailbox Peak, Teneriffe or Mount Si.
