johnp79DC Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 11, 2010


My 2nd climb of Mt. Rainier, this time I went unguided with a group of fellow climbers as a training peak for Denali in 2011. Climbed to Ingraham Flats on day 1 and setup camp. Encountered thick cloud cover up till about 9,000 feet, then nothing but sunshine. Got up around 2:30am and hit the summit. Took the cleaver and made the summit a couple hours later. Long way down to Paradise, followed by a red-eye back to Chicago. One LONG day but amazing!

Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2009


My first time on Rainier and first glacier experience. I used Alpine Ascents as a guide and they taught me quite a bit. 1st day, we climbed to Camp Muir. 2nd day, we worked on glacier / snow skills (roped travel, self-arrest, etc) and then moved camp to Ingraham Flats for the night. Early summit bid (2am), followed by a long way down to Paradise. 3 days of beautiful weather, a sunrise summit, and one of the best experiences of my life. I'm hooked!

Josh Lewis

This was an interesting experience. Ended up with a guy who had little clue as to what he was doing on the mountain, manipulated the rope team, and put us in some danger. I'll try avoiding that one in the future.

After a couple of summits from Camp Muir, I'm so glad I finally did this Emmons-Winthrop route. The approach is much more scenic, Camp Sherman is a far better base, it has one tenth the crowds, and the climb is three times as fun. I'm stoked for a winter climb now!

Summit with RMI team up the Ingraham direct. Cold and windy after the Flats. No views up top to speak of...

Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2010


Perfect conditions, icy in AM, not a lot of postholing until later in the day. No summit thanks to altitude sickness, but can't wait to try it again in 2011!

Crazy wind storm on the decent (over 70mph sustained winds...no clue what the gusts were). Good times with the guys from RMI.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2006


Calvin and Caj summitted after climbing the Further Finger route up the mountain. Pat and Eva went back to camp after about an hour.
The Finger route was really steep but with nice snow in the morning.
This is the 4th highest state highpoint.
Eva and I had to eventually get back for her to summit too. More on this later.

Summited on our first try at the peak! Camped at the flats and took the summit the next day. Beautiful weather other than the wind (I could barely stand up on the crest). Awesome mountain but next time I'll need a harder route :)

Paul86Kautz/Hazard Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2010


Finally got to see Camp Hazard and the Kautz up close. The conditions were awesome until we got to the summit plateau, at which time we were suddenly being blasted with hurricane force winds. We decided to nix a trip to Columbia Crest as we had successfully completed our route. The Kautz, for me, was a bit of an ass kicker. However, the ice was in good shape and the trip was without many flaws.

Emmons is wonderful route. Camping at above Steamboat Prow provided great views. Great weather and fairly easy route-finding. Lost a camera case and had an encounter with a friendly bear.
All-in-all a fantastic trip.

Second successful summit via the Ingraham Direct. Rainier is my favorite climb because it has almost everything a mountain can offer and is also close to my hometown. Will head back to climb every few years or so!
