Great day on the mountain. Went with RMI.

rockrat2not so great route  Sucess!


Awesome mountain but unless you are an absolute beginner I would recommend a more challenging route. It was like a cattle trail and tons of people. Get a really early start to avoid the crowds.

dharmabumAvy Danger
Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2010


Made it as far as Ingraham Flats. Avalanche danger was too high on slope above Flats. Just 2 days before my climb there was a massive slab avalanche which killed one climber and injured several others. Also, on "summit" day, weather was pretty gnarly - high winds and complete whiteout conditions. Will try again in July '11

Kiefersurprised!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2009


We had originally intended on doing the Ingrahm Direct but due to the glacier being too broken up and convoluted, we opted for the DC. It was a bit of a surprise. A highly enjoyable route with some real crevasse issues!
A great day with Carl, Marc, Anton & Sean

Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2009


The cleaver was a little sketchy during the daylight (sun heating the cleaver) with the mix rock and snow but was doable. The weather and the experiences were perfect though.I went with a great group of people and looking on doing many more with them.

Vertigo soul

I thought the DC was a good route for my first time climbing Rainier. Not technically difficult, just a long snow slog really! A couple of snow bridges to cross, but overall in great shape....probably thanks to such a good snow year in the Pacific NW, and recent snow fall.

GroundswellAlmost went for big ride  Sucess!


took by friend Adrian 3 months before my wedding. On the way down, he forgot to keep crampons on the snow and went for a slide. I couldnt hold his 200lbs to my 145 lbs but luckily i had buried my ax to the hilt and tied it to my harness as i always do. Guides below on Ingraham Flats watched whole thing. I belayed my friend all the way down to the flats where he took a long "nap" otherwise uneventful trip

JakesterDC Route
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2008


Made it past Disappointment Cleaver but a late start, no rest, and an exhausting crevasse rescue seminar the day before all conspired to turn us around at ~12,600. Will be back this summer to try again.

survived a trying 4-day mini expedition on rainier. horrible weather gave us just enough of a breather to allow a summit attempt. we made the most of it and are extremely pleased with the results!
