Glacier Climb - Mount Rainier/Disappointment Cleaver

Good conditions. Cleaver was half snow, half rocks. Very few crevasses open due to recent snow fall. Windy but not a major issue. Warm weather created mushy snow very early in the day. Snow shoes not need.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Route was very well marked due to several parties summiting the day before. 

Departed Ingraham Flats 10pm to avoid rock fall danger on Cleaver from other parties.  Arrived summited at 5am. (Camp to summit 7h)  Departed summit at 6am, back to camp by 11am (Summit to camp 5h).  Ingraham flats to Camp Muir 1pm - 2pm (1h).  Camp Muir to TH 3pm-6:30pm (3.5h).
