Date Climbed: Aug 10, 1997


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.

Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2006


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.
