Ascent Trip Report

This was my first attempt. I took the Boundary Trail starting from the Nisqually entrance to Mount Rainier National Park. The trail is not maintained but easy to follow all the way to the southwestern ridge of Mount Wow. I had brought a folding saw and spent a lot time trimming overgrown tree branches and shrubs,and as a result I ran out of time.
