Ascent Trip Report

Conditions were optimal for the Paradise approach to Little Tahoma, which saves some elevation gain compared with the standard route but can only be done safely while the glacier snow bridges on the lower Ingraham are in good shape, usually winter and early spring. We ascended to 9,500' just below Camp Muir. This is the point where we would turn right onto the Paradise Glacier and then the lower Ingraham. We had a teammate that was not feeling well so we decided to turn back at this point and save Little T for another day.
