JoelSkokDisappointment cleaver/ Ingraham Glacier route  Sucess!

A couple of successful ascents, both from Muir to the Ingraham. Thanks to my partners Dan Logan (in 1979) and Big John Anderson (1984)

DebPerfect Weather Window  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2012


From Paradise to Muir, we had low vis, snow, wind...loved the rime ice that collected on us. Quick nap and it was off to the summit via DC. Couldn't ask for better weather, clear sky, freezing temps, light winds..... Descent from Muir to Paradise really sucked with post-holing and shit but we were just thrilled to have summitted between all the lousy weather this month. :)

Hiked in late on 8/31, acclimated all day 9/1, and made a push at 1am on 9/2. Got to the top of the Cleaver @ 6am, only another 1800ft and 2.5 hrs ish to the top, but partner had to turn around. Conditions were prime - no snow, rain, bluebird both days up high. Too many people generally speaking for my taste

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!

apewinthrop route  Sucess!
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.

moonspotsFirst summit, ever.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2012


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.

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2012


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.

Climbed the DC route first time up a big mountain good training grounds but much easier than I expected, only other crampon exp was Mt Washington, NH which was seemed more tiring

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2011


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!

ericdEmmon's dog route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2012


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.

MissHSecond try was it!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2012


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.
