Response to Rainier GPS route

 

There are numerous routes on Rainier, but their exact tracks change not only from year to year, but even from day to day. As it gets warmer and crevasses open up, snowbridges fail, etc. you have to adapt. Rangers and experienced climbers will even warn you against blindly following the boot track, because what may have worked the day before doesn't necessarily work that day.
