David MortensenDC Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2017

David Mortensen

I did this climb with RMI. They were great. It was really amazing. For me,seeing the glaciers and crevasses up close was a highlight. It was tough as well. Ascending 9k is no easy task. There were really strong winds on the summit. We went all the way to the Columbia Crest. It was difficult, but it was a great experience. Rainier is such an amazing mountain.

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2016
Climbed with Ashley, Gabe, and Amy. Set out from Paradise on Aug. 7. Made a sortie to the base of the cleaver from Camp Muir on Aug. 8, but didn't attempt the summit due to weather. Left Camp Muir around 02:20 on Aug. 9 for the summit push. Clear skies above, but cold (~0 F on summit) and relatively windy. Made it back to Camp Muir around 14:40 and down to Paradise at 19:00.

exhausting trip on very little sleep, but worth it if only for the half hour nap we took in the crater.

Gorgeous mountain. Overcrowding sucks though. Altitude sickness got me on this one, but still made it to the top/Columbia Crest. Physically exhausting but not really technical at all. Competed in a rock climbing competition in Seattle the next day! Haha

With Laura, Sam. Great times up the route! Getting pretty broken up on the glaciers by now and very meandering.

Definitely underestimated how tired I'd be near the top with a relatively short break at Muir. Whiteout conditions on the summit with probably -20F wind chill.

Climbed the DC leaving the car at 5 PM and returning to it at close to 5 PM the next day. We had a very limited time/weather window. I think we got about 2 or 3 hours of sleep at Camp Muir. It was awsome!

Part of a team of ten from Sierra Mountaineering Group that summitted via this route on a lucky weather window on a clear day. The route is scenic, not too hard but still definitely a taste of everything. Aside from all the other folks on the route, highly recommended.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2012


Climbed this route with a team of ten from SMG. Left Muir base camp around 1:30am and topped out at 8:30am. Some good climbing through the cleaver and a long steady climb though high break to the crater rim. It's a good feeling when your standing inside that crater because it really is just a short walk to Columbia Crest.
