The Emmons Glacier Route on Rainier is the second most climbed route on the mountain, and may well be the least technical. It receives about 15% of the around 10,000 annual summit attempts. This is a long strenuous climb (10,000 vertical feet) and demands solid aerobic conditioning. The climb requires a climbing permit. See the NPS web site for the latest permit regulations.
