Cold! Altitude hit me pretty good. First time up Rainier. I'm hooked. Can't wait to go back for another climb.

Climbed the DC leaving the car at 5 PM and returning to it at close to 5 PM the next day. We had a very limited time/weather window. I think we got about 2 or 3 hours of sleep at Camp Muir. It was awsome!

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

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!!
