Climbers Before Dawn
Climbers at 12,000 feet on the Emmons Glacier, Mount Rainier. The DC Route was so bad this year, we were forced to traverse under the cleaver onto the Emmons Glacier. This added several miles and considerable lost elevation to our ascent. Photographed July 29, 2007.

Did you join any other climbing parties; coming up from Camp Schurman? Gotta love the
DC Route ... it CHANGES every year. Cheers!

We didn't join any parties but there were several behind and ahead of us. It is a great route. Cheers!
