MtMtnHiker1st attempt at Rainier via Emmons/Winthrop
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2013


1st time on Rainier and loved every minute of it. Made it to 12,600 before turning around due to a combination of onset of altitude sickness, deteriorating weather and general fatigue. No regrets or doubts and feel it was a 100% success. Excited to try it again next year.

Great climb/carryover going up the Kautz and down the DC. Muir was pretty busy given the holiday weekend, but it still wasn't too bad.

Via Disappointment Cleaver. The only disappointment was that I didn't get to climb it with one of my friends who was planning to climb it with me for a long time. Still got to meet some great people though.

It was chilly on the summit, but once the sun came out it was roasting. 22.8F at Ingram Glacier camp on summit day. Beautiful weather conditions, but with some haze down low.

My first time on a real glacier. Loved it and caught the real mountaineering bug.

Just my Wife and I, Early start from IM flats, cold weather with the wind. Came up 500 ft short. Will take another shot at it next year. I really liked the DC , lot of fun. Best to go early in the season with snow on the cleaver in my opinion

Made it to the top on a very sunny and hot day. No matter how much sunscreen we put on it didn't keep us from burning. It was totally worth it though! Thank you Mount Rainier for the beautiful weather!

Nice climb on a day with perfect weather. It was fun to find our own path of least resistance to the top. No-one around high on the mountain this early in the season. Perfect!

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.
