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!

Randy Sackett was the guide out of RMI. The snowpack
and weather conditions were awesome in August 1984.
There was a section above the cleaver where we were
unroped at the guide's decision. Two climbers had to
remain behind at Disappointment Cleaver. The lights
of Yakima were seen shining in the east. Great climb!

Great route (except for going through the cleaver), great views, great peace at mind. Just follow the lights of all the RMI and IMG teams.

Couldn't climb onto the cleaver, too late in the season. We climbed down around the nose of the cleaver and up the Emmons Glacier. Very windy, but clear skies.

Though my 1983 overstuffed 15 degree Marmot Pocket Gopher (that I still use!) worked well with a bit of help from a reflecto warmer. We had light loads on ready for Liberty Ridge...maybe nest time Dirky.

Sue and I attempted the DC route during a week of truely shitty weather. After giving up on any sort of attempt we skipped dinner on our last night and decided to wait to eat a good meal the following day after descending from Muir. That night the weather cleared and we left at 1:00 AM with little energy, improper hydration and lack of will. We ascended to 14K before exhaustion and a spasm in Sue's back before turning around. No problem about not summiting as I was more concerned about a safe traverse back before the Cleaver of our two-person rope team but made it back safe and sound. Better a responsible climber than a liability to others in our book.

Great weather, great day. Had the summit to ourselves, and only saw a couple of RMI teams. Looking to Tahoma Glacier the next time.

What a great climb. I think the key was getting up early and beating the RMI people up the route. Saw the sun come up on the Summit, that was a real treat.

My first glacier climb, and second overall after Shasta. We had great weather after a storm the first night followed by my first whiteout in the morning. Summitted on my first try with no guides! Thank God for good weather!

Nobody had summitted in a week and noon had attempted DC in recent memory, perhaps not for the season, even. The ice was loosening up in the mid-morning warm-up. We rushed to get off the glacier.
