Jefferson, Rainier and Shuksan

  • Jul 3, 2014 · 7:00 PM

This summers West coast trip is going to be exciting!! There are a few different agendas for the people that I know are definitely coming out this year,but I am posting the trip plan I have.. basically I'm going to climb as much as I can while there. I'm flying into Portland on thursday July 3rd and driving to the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness . This is a hike in and camp night.  Friday the 4th will be the summit attempt. If due to weather or what not and we dont make it we will attempt again the following day!! This peak WILL get summitted! If all goes well we will hike a few surrounding ridges and peaks the 2nd day befdore we hike out.. The Mt.Jefferson wilderness is some of the moist beautiful backcountry I have ever seen. A few days in here will be great!!

July 6th we'll meet up with Chris and Vicki and hike up to Rainier's camp Muir . July 7 we go foir Rainier summit..If attempt fails we try again on the 8th otherwise its a descent and i'm headed north. I'm thinking about climbing baker if all goes to plan,but not etched in stone. We'll meetup with Chris and Vicki once again on the 9th and attempt the majestic Shuksan!! This itenary leaves plenty of time for rest or weather delays..I'm going to rent a car and someone to help split  cost would be great! If your riding with me its going to be an epic week of constant climbing and excitement.. I know Cerone has his own plans as well as Lang so we will see em as the trip goes down..

 Finally email me first before rsvping for this..Only room for 1 maybe 2 people. This is not a beginner trip and before considering this trip be sure that you are in top form Physically ,mentally and skillfully. Thanks...,JimW

    Hey if you want any photos of Jefferson conditions let me know because I had the kickass luck of a summit with my partners about 12 hrs ago. Snow and rime ice on the pinnacle, little visible rock (at the moment) Lead better have tools!

      Check online for permit availability. Most of the time you have to reserve for st helens
