The Cascades are an awesome sight. Great weather for the climb all four days on the mountain...warm enough to wear shorts on Ingraham. But, that warm weather pulled a vw beetle size boulder out of the Cleaver nearly swiping three climbers off the mountain. We were able to take an extra day to spend learning crevasse rescue and another to take it easy. It was nice to have the extra time so we didn't need to worry as much about altitude. My next route on Rainier will surely be one less traveled.

This was my first big Mt. Got really sick near the summit as weather came in, kept on trucking and downing that nasty powerbar GOO. It'a amazing what sugar gell can do for you and how much you'll pay for it later. Made it with 150m from the summit and had to turn arround as weather came in quick and visibility dropped to a danderous level. None the less it was an amazing trip and I'll be abck some day to finish off the job!

Very long day climb from Paradise. Perseides Meteor shower was brilliant, as was the sunrise. Made our way in and around many, many, guided groups emerging from huts like Jawas. Fairly crowded mountain, yet still amazing and rewarding.

An amazing experience and great timing. The snow bridges were still intact and the day after we got down the weather turned bad.

A great moderate route. We did not see anyone else until we reached the summit. Climbed the Emmons in August of 1999. A straight forward glacier slog. Climbed Liberty Ridge 22Jun06. Great conditions, descent via Emmons was torture.

Dug in on the snow field just below Muir hut. My wife was falling asleep walking and it was icing up bad(we didn't have crampons). Wind started blowing so I put some big rocks in the corner of our cheap 3 season tent. It was a cool night. When I woke up in the middle of the night Adams and Baker? Looked like islands sticking out of the clouds. It was crystal clear above 8000 feet. The nest day we finished hiking to Muir base camp and then glissaded back to paradise in what seemed like minutes. Really a great time in the mountains.

Then off to luxury and room service.

We started our climb from the White River Campground at 4400'. Hiked along the White River up to Inter Glacier camp at about 8000' and made camp. The next day we practiced self-arrest on the glacier and climbed up to Steamboat Prow and made camp at Camp Schurman (9500'). Started from Camp Schurman at 2:00 AM. Climbed with guides Jason Tanguay, Tap Richards, Heidi Eichner, and Mason Stafford from IMG under beautiful stars and a bright red planet Mars. Two members of our team turned around with a guide due to altitude sickness. I reached the summit with my friend Ed and Norm from Connecticut. Snow was slushy and crevasses dangerous on way down. Stayed one more night at Camp Schurman and then hiked down. Thought it was cool that 2 of my guides have recently completed the Seven summits (2006) and another has climbed Denali, Vinson, Kili, and Everest. Also had dinner with IMG owner Eric Simonson the night before our climb started. Nice guy. My first mountain climb ever. HP #1.

Part way up (13,500?) both of my climbing partners, Brian Farnsworth and Mike Contos got alltitude sickness, I continued to the crater rim, left my pack and went back down, one of my partners Mike Contos was feeling better so he came with me to the top, we had a hard time finding the summit register, it was my first big Mountain and I loved it.....I was 19
