Garon CorizA Big Mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2013

Garon Coriz

First time attempting the peak. Drove from SLC with Duc and met some peeps in Boise for the carpool there. We started from Paradise late (1pm), slept for <4 hours at Camp Muir, before starting the summit push at 1:15am. We topped out at 8:15 after some waiting at the headwall and slow going higher up due to fatigue. A guided client had a seizure or something near teh headwall above the Cleaver so we got to see the rescue. We got back to Paradise by 5 thanks to the awesome glissade down the Muir Snowfield.

Near full moon lit up the glacier with a nice purple glow. Straightforward route, but lots of traffic. Would like to try out one of the other routes someday.

Four nice days in Mount Rainier National Park in the beginning of July, just as a heat wave hit the NW Pacific! One night at Cougar camp, one night at Muir and the third up at the Ingraham Flats.
We left at 02:30 and summited 06:30 in sunny but very windy conditions. It was hard standing upright.
A loooong walk down to Paradise!!
A beautiful mountain in a very scenic environment.

Raninier felt alot higher than it's 14.411ft /4.392m compared to the Alps. Now I realize why half of all the climbers wore Spantik's! :-)

Very cold and very windy, hardest climb of my life. I was very relieved when I made it to the top.

One beast of a mountain, more vertical than anything I've done previously, including high peaks in Peru.

A beautiful day up on the Emmons Route! Hiked into Glacier Basin on Friday night, Camp Shurman early Saturday, and hit the top at 7:00 AM on Sunday. Back to the cars by 3:30- definitely a cool way to spend a weekend!

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.

Great trip, challenging mountain. IMHO, a little more difficult than Shasta.
