Intermediate Alpine Climb - Mount Rainier/Tahoma Glacier

Very seldom done climb and notoriously dependent on the conditions to be successful. It is a 3-day carryover trip. I would like to see some ice climbing and high-altitude mountaineering experience on the roster along with fitness. When requesting for a permission, please state what you have been doing lately to stay fit and your experience.
