We heard rockfalling above the Cowlitz until about 11 pm that night. So we delayed our summit until it got a little colder. We left about 1 am and had a safe and uneventful climb. The snow/ice was good the whole way. It was warm on our return. It took 7 hours up and 4 hours down with plenty of time for breaks, pics, food, etc.

Summited at 10 am on a sunny and very hot day (t-shirt weather on top). Spectacular glaciers and views. Descent was uneventful in a good way as there were a lot of potential hazards due to the warmth.

Second summit on June 14th, 2009 via the DC again.

4 climbs so far. 2 successful. the first was my first and uneducated glacier climb with my buddy. we are lucky nothing happened. we didn't know what we were doing...but we got some good pics. then a success the next year with the same guy. and again the following year with some fellow SP friends. and then a failure last weekend because a member of our party bit off more than he could chew and we had to turn around. oh well. back up in two weeks. done DC 3 times and emmons once. one more for emmons this month. then maybe a new one in august.

First real Mountaineering feat! My best friend and I couldnt of had a better time! We did get a little cold sitting on the saddle waiting for the sun to come up. Great Mountain, and I want to go back!

Great weather and great summit. I climbed this peak with one partner, Ed, a good friend from the Sierra Club. It's nice to return home to Washington and get in a peak.

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2006


Great route, except for the loose nasty DC itself. Reminded me of N. Maroon Peak in ways. The route seemed like it had to be altered by the hour due to lots of sun and melting bridges. Aboslutely gorgeous mountain! TR coming at some point.

Hats off to RMI for their wanding. That said, watch out for old wand that have not been removed.

Summited with friends Marc Shwartz and Chris Umphres- despite having sore legs from summiting Mt. Baker the day before. We camped at Camp Shurman and left for the summit at 2am. We reached the summit at around 8am and took a nap on a steam- warmed rock at the crater rim. We descended most of the route without our crampons due to soft snow. The glissades down the Inter Glacier were like sliding down a 3000 foot water slide! Totally fun!!!!

RenardoEmmons Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2005


Took the Emmons Route with friend Mike Leno from Bend, OR. Got a head start and camped at Glacier Basin the first night, which gave us an easy second day to Schurman, where we camped instead of at Emmons Flats due to rain and sleet. Cleared up that night and we had a great summit day with the best weather you could expect. It was actually almost too warm making the snow very soft on the way down. The next day it was even warmer on the descent, but we could see the storms blowing in and were glad to get back to the car! Overall a great climb on a huge mountain!

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2006


Liberty Ridge was an exiting trip. I had great weather and the route was in best conditions. On the way to summit I met two other climbers who were so generous to me by offering climbing with them as a roped team. A solo climb would not have been possible for me.

Climbed Rainier with Alpine Ascents as part of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center annual fundraiser. Everyone summited which was quite impressive since there were a number of first time climbers. We all planned to wake back up on July 4 after summiting to watch the fireworks in Seattle, but sure enough, we all slept till the next day. This climb was a dream come true for me!

A nice, if long, snow slog to the top. Conditions were perfect. Snow bridges holding up. Left camp schurman at 12:20 and made the summit at 5:15 am to see the sun rise. A beautiful climb under beautiful weather.

Summit on try #1 with fellow SP'er Jamin. Thanks to RMI for wanding out the route so nicely, and for the fixed ropes. Stunning mountain, clear views..just so much hard work over 2 days. Left Muir at 4:30 AM (much too late) but made good time summiting in 6.5 hours. Slushed up pretty bad on the return to Muir, many small crevasses opening up (but obvious if you are diligent)I hope no one is around when the big serac drops.

Left Camp Shurman late at night with a group of 8 climbers on three ropes. Weather was really good but one climber became ill so my wife and I decided to descend with her so the remaining climbers could make the summit. Will be back next year to climb it again. A tough climb that you really need to be in shape for.

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2006


Our party of four from Minnesota (me having just recently moved to Seattle from Minnesota) reached the summit crater at about 14,250 ft in mostly beautiful conditions. (Around 13K or 13.5K, winds picked up as heavy clouds created white out conditions at the top.) We determined that Columbia Crest itself would be anticlimactic in the white-out, so opted to skip the final bit to the highest point with winds tunneling through a gap at an estimated 60-70+ mph. A few crevasses were opening, but nothing major. Great trip!
