Ascent Trip Report

This was a fairly easy climb, gaining only about 1150 feet over almost 3 miles. The trail was in good shape with mostly gentle climbs. Unfortunately, the weather around Rainier is often unpredictable, and the top third of the mountain was hiding behind clouds while I was on this hike.
