Did you paint your ice axe, or did you just
settle for the practicality of your tool and
proceed to the opposite side of Paradise ?

After many years of using my ice axe the paint was chipping away, so my friend and I painted my ice axe black to give it more style. It was worth every drop of spray paint.

It's an awesome shot but did you do this climb without roping up? I'm guilty of crossing a couple glaciers unroped but generally I think it's a bad habit.

We roped up right after this photo was taken. I do admit that we did not rope up until the top of the cleaver to preserve my rope again many of the rocks on the DC. Late season tends to have much more rock on the route and the crevasses are more obvious. I won't say it was good practice for glacier travel, but it made climbing this section much easier. Once we were past the Disappointment Cleaver we roped up. But I can assure you that what we did on Dragontail was much more dangerous.

Wow single day accent on Mt. Rainer! You are headed for big things. The big D or the big E someday.

Thanks Marlon. I am now planning on doing a winter ascent of Mount Rainier. If it were not for the expense factor, I would already have a trip ready for Denali and beyond. But some day they will be waiting for me.
