Check out the park's website for information regarding climbing permits this summer season. The early-access reservation lottery results were just released on March 14th. For those who won the lottery, access to make a reservation will start rolling out March 21st. For those who didn't win the lottery or didn't apply, climbing permit reservations will be available starting April 25th. There's a table with all of the important dates on the recreation.gov website.
Keep an eye on the weather using some of the great resources we have here in the NW (see the Weather Resources tab above), make sure to get your climbing permit reservations, keep your winter fitness training plans going, and we'll see you here atop the mountain this coming summer climbing season!
