From Paradise, take Skyline Trail and Snowfield Route to Camp Muir. All climbing above this point requires a permit.
From Camp Muir, head across the Cowlitz Glacier to Cathedral Ridge. Pass through one of the three notches on the ridge. Usually the center notch.
Climb scree to the ridgecrest and on to the Ingraham Glacier.
Cross the Ingraham Glacier to Disappointment Cleaver. Follow this to a snowfield and wander to the top.
This is the most popular route on the mountain and the normal route of the guide service. It is usually a well worn trail to the summit.
Descend by same route.
All climbers must register at the Ranger Station.
From Paradise (5557'), take the Skyline trail and Snowfield route to Camp Muir.
Warm and foul weather clothing, headlamp, ice axe, rope, crampons and whatever other safety gear that you desire.

Is the Ingraham direct or the disappointment cleaver climbed in late April at all?
Has anyone done it then?
Any advice on the subject would be helpful.
I can't climb it in the summer because of work.

This is the route that most people take on guided trips. Easiest way up. Amazing view. Not really technical other than the risk of falling in to a crevasse.

Not always about how technical or hard, its about the journey.
