Paul86First Rainier Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2008


We were under prepared and stupid. Should not have gone but somehow found success thanks to great weather and good help from other teams. I learned a great deal from this climb.

KushrocksRe: First Rainier Ascent


Hey man how long did it take you to climb rainier total? I am looking into doing it next August. Was there any very technical terrain? What special equipment did you need? Is it possible to do it in one day?

We had to cross two ladders, but other than that still great condition. We left late from Camp Muir (4.30am), because it was very cold. Not very crowded.

Lead a team of five up the route after a day at Camp Muir to acclimatize. Route was in excellent shape and was very direct. Went mid week so it was not too busy for Rainier...about six other rope teams left with us around midnight. 6.5 hours to crater rim, 4.5 hours descent w/ 2 newbies.

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.

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
