Matt Hegeman just called with an update from our Liberty Ridge crew on Mt. Rainier. The road to White River trailhead has not officially opened to the public, but the Mt. Rainier NPS was gracious enough to make sure our group was able to drive to the trail head, saving about 7 miles of road walking each way. Whew!
The whole crew is doing well and has made it to Thumb Rock at about 10,700′, where they will camp for the night. Now we’re watching the forecast and the guides will decide in the next 24 hours when to go for the summit.
