Ascent Trip Report

Late season ascent of Rainier via Emmons.
Interglacier has a couple of open crevasses, and a few hidden ones with some punch-through-s. Snow starts around 7000.
The Emmons glacier is pretty broken up, the "standard" snow bridge at 11900 has collapsed. We found an alternative bridge to the left. It starts to look sketchy, but can easily protect with pickets/screws. Above 13000 we had to traverse all the way to the col between Curtis ridge and the summit.
Times: 7:30am leaving TH, 2:30pm arrived at camp Schurman. 1:30am left camp Schurman, 8:30am stood on the summit. 1:20pm back at camp, 6:45pm back at the TH.
