Mark Straub

It was a great trip, although we were not successful. We spent the night at Lunch Counter and headed up for a summit push in the morning. We left at 3:30 a.m., and a long and tough push up the mountain got us to Piker's Peak at 6:45. Winds of about 70mph and ice drove us back down (We did not have crampons with us.) Nevertheless, a fun trip to be on.

farrisglSouthside Spur Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2002


I had climbed Rainier the previous week as part of an expedition training course and when in the PacNorWest looked to another peak. Camped out below the Lunch Table, then up the southside spur route the next day. Very little snow made for slow going on the scree / loose rooks. Weather was spotty for most of the day. Final 200 wind blowing with limited visability. Reached the summit house, found the signin box on the back side, took a quick self portrait and headed down. Weather cleared a bit to reveal a decent view.

Greatest glissades ever! Yakama name for peak (PAH-TO)so much more accurately describes its nobility and beauty.

Long day but six volcano views. not much glissading but I didn't care because the six volcano views made it more than worthwhile.

Good conditions, but icy from the Lunch Counter to Piker's Peak.

Turned back due to high winds approx 1000 feet above Sunrise Camp(8300 ft). Great trip anyway. Had the camp all to ourselves for most of the week end. We had a large party(11), as this was a fund raising climb for breast cancer research (FHCRC, the "Hutch" in Seattle). Avoid South Spur and its crowds.....climb the Mazama instead.

Michael71long but nice climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2008
started at cold springs at 4:10 am, reached the summit at 12:30, took me longer than estimated; hardest part is the snowfield below the false summit, that almost got me; no real need for crampons but could be different in other conditions; glissading was hardly possible anymore in the afternoon;
met a lot of nice people up there;
take care when going down if you glissade down the Crescent glacier, there was a large open crevasse there, but almost no one seemed to mind but me; I missed the right way down the Crescent ridge and (just as warned on the Climbing Report page) got lost on my way down, meaning having to go back another 300m up which finished me;
nevertheless a great trip, best done in my view in one day, beautiful mountain and scenery with Hood, St. Helens and Rainier

LeviBack for the Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2008


Camped at the Lunch Counter and started the next morning at 5. Made the summit at 9. The smoke and haze cut down on the view. Rainier, St. Helens and Hood were all visible from the summit but no further. After failing last year it was great to reach the summit.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2008


Left from the South Spur TH and then generally followed the Around-The-Mountain trail to the base of the Mazama Glacier, where we camped. The next morning we roped up (it was my first time on a big glacier--quite exciting) and made the summit in the early afternoon.

DundeelSouth Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2008


Snow from just above the TH. Lots of melted out tent sites and running water available at Lunch Counter. Visibility was limited on the 6th due to California forest fire smoke.
Made a 5am start from Lunch Counter with crampons. Smoke had blown away and the view was excellent once the sun came up. Reached the summit shortly after 10. Wind at Pikers Peak was 25 to 30 and on the summit, 40+. It took us 3 hours to climb to Pikers Peak and 20 minutes to glissade back down.
Finished off with a great meal at KJ's Bear Creek Cafe in Trout Lake.
