jjfromnj3 day Muir climb
Date Climbed: May 30, 2011

Started at Paradise and camped at Muir, then at Ingraham Flats. Got turned around at ~12,000 ft. on summit day due to graupel buildup and avalanche danger.

Great weather up to 13,000 feet. Then wind picked up visibility dropped to less than 30 feet. The trail was great and allowed us to push to the true summit, which made the long hike down to the car a little bit more enjoyable!

Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2012
My first time up Rainier, and by the very interesting Winthrop re-route of the usual Emmons-Winthrop (late summer 2012). First day up to Schurman, then spent a day acclimatizing and resting, then hit the summit on the third day. Intermediate protection was needed (several pickets), a few scary spots.

I've been planning this hike for several years, and finally decided last fall that this summer was going to be the time. Celebrated my 61st birthday on Ingraham Flats, then summited the next morning at about 6:34AM. It was difficult, but not as tough as I had imagined. The best part was around 3am when we stopped at the top of DC, and I wasn't tired, or out of breath. It was then that I knew that was going to make it.

Climbed with a team of ten from SMG (Terrie, Kelvin, David, Florian, Olga, Art, Kevin, Rodney, and Darren). Perfect weather and a great route. Favorite part had to be reaching the crater lip and knowing the summit was just a short walk away.

Three day climb with IMG via the DC route between July 14 and 16, 2012. Weather was very unpredictable during our entire climb and after leaving Ingraham Flats at 3 AM on summit day in good conditions, the weather closed in on us. Wound up summiting in 40-50 MPH winds with extremely low visibility and heavy cloud cover. Only spent a few minutes on the southeast crater rim before beginning a very rapid descent. I was completely covered with rime ice by the time we got back down to the top of Disappointment Cleaver. A very exciting day on Rainier!!

We managed to make the summit on our first attempt thanks to a brief weather window. Amazing climb and the crevasses seemed less obvious than most years in early July. Stayed an extra night in Camp Schurman to savor our success and finish off our Wild Turkey!

Nice conditions ...minus the lack of an ice bridge on descent, someone needs to tread lightly man! After completing this Eastern 10hr dog route in light winds & sunshine, I was thinking the fast Fuerer Finger route should be next in the climbing que. Figured our descent time is 1/3 of ascent time due to all the glissading, may want to bring an old air mattress to enjoy this better. Great views from this side of mtn. Friendly bear.

Fantastic weather window. Decided against the DC route and was glad we did. Although the Emmons route was busy and Camp Schruman was full, it was no where near as many people as the DC route on this gorgeous July 4th weekend. Summitted shortly after sunrise to a beautiful summit.

Summitted via Emmons Glacier with base camp near Camp Curtis. Busy holiday weekend meant that we had lots of people to keep us company and encourage me! Crevasses are pretty easy to maneuver around and thanks to that group that fixed a line for us all to use after the snowbridge broke through :) Weather was perfect with an awesome late thunderstorm last night.

We wanted to do the ID but were dissuaded by the climbing ranger's beta. Opting for the DC we pulled out of Muir at 12:40 am and reached the crater rim by 4:45. The DC was a solid snow staircase the whole way. The weather the last 400 feet or so turned into an ice storm whiteout with high winds. We sought shelter in a steam vent. It was pretty hardcore.

I climbed this one with Dick Wimmer and Howie Vander Meer. We left the Muir Hut at about 1:00 am and had decent (but windy) conditions until the top of Disappointment Cleaver where an IMG guided group and another private group were turning around. We pressed on through increasing wind and thick misty clouds and topped out at 8:00 am. Snow was very firm and wind blown on the top 2,000 feet of the mountain. Weather got better on the descent to Camp Muir; however, going down the Muir snow field we were in whiteout conditions. This was Dick and Howie's 48th state highpoint and my 34th.

9 years earlier I had spent the night at the Muir Hut on June 25, 2003. The inside of the hut has been remodeled since that time and I had better weather on that trip from nine years ago.
