Picture-perfect weather conditions on the way up. RMI guides were excellent. Learnt quite a few things from them. Snow got too mushy on the way down. Saw another team (luckily) miss a big boulder rolling down the cleaver (as they were on the fixed ropes). Will surely return to try another route.

Great climb!

Steam caves are a nice place to catch a quick nap on the way up or down... other than a short technical pitch or two this route's (usually) straightforward....

Spectacular sunrise started as we hit the cleaver. Could see the Puget Sound from Columbia Crest. A team member brought a frisbee, and we played a little Ultimate in the crater basin.

Great trek to Muir. Alpine start was on the warm side. Breaks were chilly. Cloudy at the summit. Great views on the way down.

Cimb to Camp Muir was rather fatiguing because of the high temperature. Water was essential. Started the DC route summit attempt at 12:30 am. Light layer with insulated trekking pants. Breaks were very cold. Even had a fox visit us at about the third break. View from the top was spectacular. Anyone making the summit should take advantage of shedding packs at the summit bowl and hiking to the apex of the mountain. RMI guides were outstanding!! Good luck to all who dare to climb!

The climb took 2 days, starting on 6/28 and summitting on 6/29. We had great weather with little wind and lots of sunshine. This was my first time on Rainier, but I hope to definitely be back for another route.

Kept it light with a 35 lb pack for the hike up to Camp Muir. We watched from Muir as thunderstorms set off forest fires to the east on the first day. The guides really maintain this route well throughout the season. A cloud cap above 13.5k ft and very hazy skies below limited views. I think the difficulty of attaining this summit is overrated. Taking two days felt almost leisurely.

Yeah, I know...the easiest route AND in 4 days. But I had two guests, and neither one was seasoned in glacier travel or 9000' altitude gain. Route was great, weather was great, views were so-so. The smoke from forest fires in Lake Chelan and BC blocked views to the North and West. Adams, Hood, and St. Helens were clearly visible to the South and East. Two hours on the summit made the guests ecstatic. At least that what I told them they'd feel after getting home and recuperating!

Started low (hiking past Comet Falls, not from Paradise) and took our time. Two day approach to high camp (at the Turtle) had good weather. First summit attempt (morning of the 19th) was stymied by weather, however. Second push had perfect weather and great conditions. Chute was good snow and great ice. Routefinding was a bit difficult in the dark. The sunrise was spectacular, and the summit was a cold, windy desert in one crater and a party of ants (or a train of ant-sized parties) in the other.

Beautiful day on the mountain. After dealing with fog, clouds, rain, snow, and winds at Camp Muir, we started up the mountain and got stuck behind a slow party of 12 that caused us to stop right under the icefall on Ingrahms glacier. The rest of the summit day ended up being a great day on the mountain. Had some natural rockfall near the bottom of Disapointment Cleave that just nicked a team of 2 behind us.

Great views, and good crisp weather. Private trip of 4 with 2 of us attempting the summit. My first big mountain trip that I organized and led.

Successful summit on first attempt with private group. Lucked out on weather -- clear skies and record high temps in the pacific northwest. Took our time with the climb, spending two nights on the mountain -- first night at Muir, second at Ingraham Flats. Great views of Adams, St. Helens and Hood along the way and at the summit.

We had a 2 day Glacier travel course with Cascade Mountain Guides (Ryan and Jeff), were we learned self arrest, roped travel, crevasse rescue, .... and camped on the Wintrop glacier. At noon on the second day we split from the group at St. Elmos Pass and started our way up the Inter Glacier to camp Shurman where we spent the next two nights. We had a rest day on the 3rd day and went for the summit on day 4. We reached the summit at about 8 in the morning, but clouds covered the whole upper mountain so we were not 100% sure weather or not we had reached the summit. By 8:30 the clouds moved away and we confirmed our location, Columbia Crest. We spend a few minutes taking pictures and then we decented all the way to the white river camp ground. -- The glissade down the Interglacier was fantastic.

Camped at Ingrahm Flats and left for the summit at 1:30 am. Reached the summit in 4hr 30 min. Nearly got killed on the descent through the DC as a party above dislodged a head size rock that barely missed us. That team was good 100 vertical feet above us so you can imagine the kind of momentum this rock gained as it tumbled towards us!! We barely jumped out of the way. As a matter of fact, Courtney (cp0915) jumped to the left, I jumped to the right and the rock went right between us.

Great climb othewise. Fourth summit of the mountain.
