swanny171st Time Up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 26, 2011


Large 5 person team comprised of 1 person with many summits, 3 with attempts via the DC, and 1 first attempt. Made it up with perfect route conditions, only one sketchy crevasse crossing having to jump across and up and then jump down on the way back. VERY hot on the way down, but the corridor provided for some great controlled glissading cooling us off and knocking off some descent time.

Fun hike/climb/glacier walk. Camped out on Emmons glacier, nice weather, many small crevasses.

Finally cut the training wheels off and did it with some friends. Mostly a slog, but a good outing with good guys nonetheless.

Approach is melted out to approximately above Glacier Basin. Emmons is very straightforward with only a couple minor crevass crossings that won't get much worse for at least a little while. Upper route splits in two, one direct over the bergschrund, the other traversing more gently around to the saddle of Liberty Cap.
Epic 1,400' glissade track below 12,000', and again for the entire length of the Interglacier. Many skiers report upper mountain a bit too firm to be fun on top, good enough in the middle, perfect on Interglacier.

TitaniumSuccessful Summit- Emmons Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2009


High winds pounded us from the Interglacier to Camp Schurman, but a late summit bid (4:30 AM start) was the winning ticket. Summit day was clear and calm- as was the descent. 7.5 hours to Columbia Crest- and amazing views from the top.

One day made all the difference. The previous day, July 13, we had gotten shut down on this route.

Weather got increasingly worse after we left Camp Shurman. One of our two rope teams made it to 13,000 feet but then it was turn around or else....

My first Rainier climb and a lot of fun. In August, the Inter Glacier was the most exciting with lots of bare ice and rockfall - felt like dodgeball. Finding our way to Camp Schurman was also a little tricky, there are many ways to get there but all involve scrambling loose rocks or skirting big crevasses. There was water at Camp Schurman and no winds for us. The route itself above Camp Schurman was "well traveled" and felt more straightforward and safer. The bergschrund was absolutely monstrous but doable by skirting to the north. All in all a great way to get up Rainier and not have to take the DC.

After getting turned around by weather at 12,000' last year, it was a thrill to get to the summit this season!

Climbed with 3 but only 2 of us summited. Great weekend for weather, and what a great route! Schurman was a great camp as well.

First glacier climb without a guide! Followed the deep boot track in the dark. Very crowded at camp Schurman. The glacier was very open and the route wandered quite a bit. The bridges are melting out and had to traverse around the burgshurnd on the right to the Liberty Cap saddle.

Pictures are here.

Route in great shape overall with many crevasses quickly opening up due to the warm weather and heavy rains during recent thunderstorms. We hunkered down in our tents after returning to Emmons Flats because of some wonderful thunderstorms.

Rob RicksLate Season Effort

Led a three-person climb in late August. The hike through Glacier Basin is much more interesting than Muir Snowfield. Lots of crevasses ensured a great deal of route finding. Punched through a few snowbridges. Weather turned us around at 13,000. Really foul descent with lots of rain loosened rockfall on the IG. Thoroughly soaked by the time we arrived back at White River Campground. Learned a lot of lessons on this one.

A good route. Not really any technical difficulties, but some massive crevasses to run around and a few hairy snow bridges. Awesome views the whole way and Camp Schurman is substantially nicer than Camp Muir in my opinion.
