tpkrauseGreat Weather, successful climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2014
We pushed hard on the first day to Camp Shurman. 2am start and we were able to beat many other groups on the crowded ascent. Route was well traveled and we made great time to the summit and down. Weather could not have been better.

Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2015


Climbed in honor of a friend with a brain cancer. Bad storm the day before arrival and a climber died of exposure on the Liberty Ridge route. Excellent weather during our stay. Only got to 12k feet on summit day due to one of our team having AMS. But it was a great experience and I will definitely return for a summit.

A fun, relaxing 2-day climb, with shorts weather on the summit. Trip report.

This route is beautiful, fun, and can be challenging. I'd been up the DC route a few times. Tried this route a few years ago in the spring but avalanche conditions prevented a summit at that time. This week we summited at 7:45 am under clear skies and zero.. yes, I said zero wind on the summit. No congestion on the route. Highly recommended. Be prepared to alter your path on the way down as the snow bridges crumble in the afternoon.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2013


I would definitely recommend this route to anybody interested in a Rainier ascent. This was my first time on the route, and it had far fewer people than what you would typically see over on the DC!

MtMtnHiker1st time on Rainier and Emmons
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2013


We were the only party on the route. Got a somewhat late start at 2am. Colder conditions firmed the route up great. Turned around at 12,600 due to a combination of altitude sickness, deteriorating weather and general fatigue. No regrets as the weather got very nasty later. Will be back to try it again.

HotfeetGood time, bad weather!

Climbed to Camp Schurman only to decide as many, many others did that the conditions were poor. The fresh snow and warm temps made avy conditions way too risky. I will be back later!

blakemj33Just another day out  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2012


Second time up the Emmons and sixth summit of Rainier. Led a non-profit group up and it was great. Most people leave for an alpine start but the group I was with had alot of first timers and not all were in great shape so instead of leaving for the summit at midnight I had everyone wake up at 6 AM and we were off by 7:30 and were hanging out by about 1:PM. Route was great and a little icey around 13.

Climbed in a three day trip, which was fairly leisurely; a real haul but no technical challenges.

olymountainmanA fine reroute up the Winthrop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2012


Climbed her 3 days after a fresh reroute up the Winthrop. It was nice direct route, quite exposed in the lower section, but that just added to the fun!

Had great condition and weather this trip up the Emmons. Not that many people either, there were 8 of us in total climbing the route. Much more enjoyable, and slightly more technical than the DC.

I finally got fed up with doing the DC route over and over and got an opportunity to do this route. Very enjoyable, great perspective of the mountain, and a good route. I would recommend this route over the DC.

Amazing weather on Rainier. Route was in amazing shape. A little slushy on the way down, but other than that perfect.
