Ascent Trip Report

Nice hike on July 4th. Some snow on the trail but very manageable. Although closer to Mt Rainier I almost like the views at Tolmie better, maybe because you can see Mt St Helen's from Tolmie.
We met people on the rail that where having problems because they were afraid of heights. The trail is cut into the side of the ridge and is relatively wide but with some snow in spots can be out of some people's comfort zone.
WTA says that the trail has 800 ft of elevation gain but the trail goes up and down a little so we measured a cumulative gain of around 1200 ft.
