3 -Day Muir Climb via the Muir corridor/Disappointment clever
This 3 day instructional course will teach you some of the basics of glacier mountaineering, including self arrest training, glacier and rope techniques while looking to summit Mt. Rainier. Successful completion of this program will give you the required skills for some of our more advanced expeditions Prior to your climb all team members will have an instructional gear check which reviews the functionality of each piece of gear, wilderness ethics, LNT and mission statement of the National Park Service.
This three-day program via the Muir corridor/Disappointment clever on Mount Rainier is the most popular climb on the mountain. It provides an extraordinary expedition experience while allowing you to attempt the summit with the greatest ease and enjoyment. Our first night is spent in a private hut at Camp Muir (10,000 feet) already stocked with climbing gear, allowing for lighter packs on the approach. Our second night in a remote tent camp situated on the Ingraham Glacier at 11,000 feet gives us better acclimatization, a shorter summit day and a wilderness experience as we are climbing ahead of the larger groups leaving Camp Muir. All necessary training takes place on the mountain giving you more time to enjoy the wondrous beauty of Mount Rainier. This is our signature climb on Mount Rainier. We greatly look forward to having you join us this season.
