mrjenks85DC on a warm day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2015


Hiked via the DC Route. Warm, beautiful & "clear" day. Unfortunately the day before we spotted smoke from a new forest fire billowing up in the distance. By the morning of our summit, it had made things quite hazy (although we did get a cool red sunrise reflecting off the glacier)

Very low snow-levels and melt-off made for huge penitentes and cool scenery.

Guides did nice job moving the route to avoid crevasses, thus only 2 ladders.

What a fun one!

Two day summit via the Emmons Wintrhop. Left at 3am the first morning, got to camp around lunch and died in the heat for a few hours until some clouds came in. Left at 12:30am for the summit and had an incredible day.

Three rope teams from the Sierra Mountaineering Club successfully ascended Rainier via the Kautz route. Best way I've climbed Rainier so far and an aesthetic way to climb a magnificent peak.

Spent a day below Camp Hazard practicing crevasse rescue skills. Very long day to summit and to come back down the same route.

Great trip, perfect climb! Made summit at sunrise! Last year we turned around 100 feet above the cleaver.

After a team member's collapse caused RMI to scrap our climb the previous year (of course, at the 12K' top of Disappointment Cleaver), it was a real thrill to reach the summit this time. I have dreamed of climbing Rainier for over 20 years, since living briefly in a neighboring county. And this achieves my goal of climbing the highest five peaks in the lower 48.

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.

Summited with International Mountain Guides via the Disappointment Cleaver Route. Sporting conditions with high winds and sideways snow as we approached the crater rim. Great three-day climb.

Summitted at 6am from the Disappointment Cleaver route. As Sawtooth Scott mentioned, the route was very crevassed and broken up, with a lot of rockfall on the cleaver. Climbed with 2 friends.

We gained the summit at 6am after an 11:30 start from Camp Muir. Rock fall on the DC along with a route that featured multiple ladders over crevasses and some massive seracs kept us moving quickly and quietly. Temps were very warm, pushing 50 degrees at Camp Muir when we started, and on the descent the increasingly warm temps were concerning. The route is simply melting out and one can only guess as to how the rangers and guides will keep the DC open for the remainder of this summer.

I climbed with my brother Spencer (reconronin949) and Kent, strong climbers and good company both.

Cloudy day at the summit. Hung out at the lip of the crater. Did not actually go to the register. I wish it was a clear day.

Great weather up until summit day where winds kept us from getting past the head of the DC.

Rainier is the gateway for a life-long addiction of thin mountain air.

A great snow treadmill, crowded as a shopping mall. Most interesting part was the scramble to Schurman down the prow the day before. Summit of nearby Pinacle Peak more interesting than summit of Rainier because Rainier summit is huge. But was a good workout for sure! Did in 2 days; day 1 to glacier camp, day 2 to summit and down to White River campground.
