Good climb, hit the weather just about perfect. It was windy as heck though. Kind of a slog, next time I will attempt a more technical or more direct route.

mar CWith a little help of Mount Rainier Rangers and RMI  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2006
Me and colleague of mine, Felix, succesfully did a two-day climb to the summit of Mt. Rainier.
On Aug 22nd 2006 we started early in the morning (8a.m.) at Paradise, and arrived Camp Muir at 1p.m. with sunny, but a little windy weather. Then, at 1a.m. on Aug 23rd we started the final climb to the summit. We found ourselves inbetween two commercial groups, only two other private groups were heading for the summit. After climbing Disappointment Cleaver, it was very stormy
and we were thinking about returning to Camp Muir. But we decided to go on for 20minutes, and fortunately the route was leading to the upper part of the Emmons Glacier, where the wind was fine.
Finally, we reached the summit at 8.30a.m.. We had perfect weather and a great view. All, but a two-people-party, seem to
have reached the summit that day!

Going back to Camp Muir was exhaustive, because it was very hot.

There are two reasons for the success of our climb:
1. RMI did a very good job in preparing a 'highway' to the summit. Thanks for that!
2. The weather was great.

Finally, I have to thank the Park Rangers for getting me out of the crevasse near the campground and for lending me an ice axe!

Profound experience, even all these years later. Second attempt, both with my college friend Vic Caro. First, in May '97, met with whiteout the whole way to Muir Camp. This time, great weather and me better mentally prepared. What a thrill!

This was the first day suitable to ascend in a week. Beautiful clear day. Slower groups turned back as the glaicier was loosening up by mid to late morning.

Tremendous wind storm, so we turned back (in the dark). One member of our party became injured, so it was a slow journey back down. With RMI

Grizz42Furher Finger, 1st glacier climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2006


The best time of my life. The finger was great, did it by moonlight. Was completely exhausted by the summit which was blowin' at over 60mph. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!

KOPPER425Windy Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2006


This was the first time I've climbed Ranier and it was unbelievable. We took the Emmons route and it was awesome weather the whole way. Summit day it got pretty windy on the way up and towards the top there were some scetchy spots but we made it. At the summit the winds were about 50 mph and almost took us out. All in all an experience I'll never forget and will probably do again.

Took the Emmons with wife and friend. Turned around in the night on summit day because of bad weather and headed back to Camp Schurman.

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.
