BaggerFirst time's a charm  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2005


At the summit, this guy in a one-piece GorTex camo-hunting jumpsuit sits down and pulls out a can of Budwiser. Drinks half and shares the other half with the mountain. If you are going to be stupid, at least haul up something good like a Newcastle.

Great Mountain! Had perfect weather. Unbelievable clear, cloudless views in all directions.

This was my first climb to use crampons. Somehow they stayed attached to my feet, despite them being strapped to my adidas trailrunners. I climbed this mountain solo. I summitted around 8pm. I descended to Muir Hut, packed up my gear and made the full descent to the lodge in the full moon. As I approached the Lodge, a dense fog descended upon me creating the illusion that time had stopped and I was stuck in a dream. This was a great climb.

ascendingzionDC Summit First Attempt!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2005


Two friends and I were blessed with great weather to summit on our first attempt of Rainier. We traveled to Protection Camp below Muir and avoided the village planning to practice crevasse rescue the next day but a crazy storm lasting through the morning and a following whiteout kept us in our tent.
The next day we moved camp to Ingraham Flats for a head start for the summit and were able to practice our z-pulley rescue.
Summit day provided immaculate weather and a successful summit!
Much thanks to some friendly and helpful RMI guides who offered some advice and conversation while on the mountain.

Second attempt, after bailing at 13000ft the week before because of high winds.

peerzatThe Cleaver  Sucess!


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.

Oregon-ClimberRoute Climbed: Emmons-Winthrop Glacier Date Climbed: Spring 2004


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.

RileywynaRoute Climbed: reg Date Climbed: aug 1997


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.
