Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2011


Didn't see the summit till reaching camp Muir. It was super cloudy, lot's of snow from the beginning. Very fun climb. Left at 1 am and got to the summit at 9 am- little on the slow side. Wow. What a mountain.

DC- great beginner's route. Was my first mountain and didn't go through a guide service. We took a 3 day trip and practiced techniques at Camp Muir on the 2nd day. Way fun, got me hooked.

A perfect start from Muir at 1am with a blanket of stars and crisp air. At 13,600 ft. freezing rain and winds around 40 mph just before sunrise. I was sorry that the mountain turned us around but I look forward to another attempt in 2014. A great experience on a beautiful mountain.

Great climb. Disappointment Cleaver at 1:30 am with crampons on rock was quite the treat.

a great day summitting rainier in 2011!! We climbed Dissapointment cleaver. This year 2012 we tried again but were unsuccessful due to massive snowstorm. We only reached 13,000 ft this time before having to descend back to camp. we waited out storm for two days then went to Mt.Hood instead.

A 4th of July climb via the Emmons that was awesome. Due to winds most parties threw in the towel early but staying one more day set the stage for sharing the summit with one other person!

Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2011


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!

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
