Mount Rainier Trip Report (#6428)

Climbed the Disappointement Cleaver route from Camp Muir. My advise is to start early (we started at 11pm) and don't delay too long on the summit. We started down a little late and as a result, we were crossing a dangerous crevasse field in the heat of the day when snow bridges are least likely to hold. Definately not ideal, but everyone made it alright. The well beaten path certainly helps. . .
