Ascent Trip Report

First Mt Rainier summit attempt. Took the Muir -> DC route on a guided climb with IMG. Conditions were excellent and weather was fantastic. Was a bit windy at Ingraham Flats to the top on summit day, but it helped keep us cool as it was very warm.

Summit took 5 hours from Ingraham Flats to the top with stops at the top of the cleaver (12,300) and high break (13,500).
