Drove out from CO to climb Hood and Rainier. Warmed up with Mt. Hood on June 10th and climbed a variation of the old chute. The clouds came down below the summit ridge and cleared as we summited. It was nice to have the place all to ourselves. The next day we drove to Mt. Rainier and started up the Emmons glacier. We planned on staying at Emmons Flats but ended up staying at Schurman due to a blizzard/whiteout. After all parties but one peaced out due to weather we stayed another day and summited on June 14th on a beautiful but windy day. What a trip!

06/02/02 First ascent with Kevin, Doug, and my son Brewster. Incredible experience being with family and close friends at altitude.
07/28/06 Second ascent was supposed to be with Kimberly. I got sick the day we were to head to Camp Muir but two days later I was brand new so I ended up going up after she did we both made it even though we were a couple of days apart. I summited on same route.

Made it to the summit on a windy, bitterly cold day. Snowed hard at Muir, and on top, clear and windy in between. Tough summit, but made it all the more satisfying.

Not exactly sure of the date is 1976.. late July or early Aug... Dan Boyd was the lead guide for Man & His Land Western Expeditions II .... Hardest thing I've ever done ... Did it again two years later and that was the greatest thing I ever did !!

There was so much fog, I couldn't even see my way from the parking low to the lodge much less to the top of the mountain. Still, this is a wonderful National Park, and what I DID see was memorable and fantastic. Even the speeding ticket I got in Yakima after I left Mt. Ranier didn't spoil my thoughts of this perfect place!

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!

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!

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!
