Since 2008, TMG has been awarded a permit to guide Mount Rainier via the Emmons Glacier. Fall of 2019 is the reapplication season, and we expect to know about the status of our 2020/21 permit by the end of November 2019. We will begin to accept registrations as soon as we know that we are permitted. For more information, please continue reading below . . .
Our trip will begin outside the park on Sunday where we will meet for an afternoon meeting, gear check and pre-climb briefing. The following day we will head in to the White River trailhead and our goal for the day will be to climb to Glacier Basin Camp at approximately 6,000 feet. Day two should bring us to about 9400′ at Camp Shurman. We have allocated day three as our first chance to summit, but we also have Day four as well. We will plan to hike out on Day five. We feel that a five day climb will give us the best chance for proper acclimatization in order to succeed on a climb of this magnitude.
