Since it was our first time attempting a glaciated peak we took the Disappointment Cleaver route. Camped at Camp Muir the first night, a windless night. Up at 03:00 to cool still conditions. Made it to Cathedral Rocks after some wandering around crevasses - everything was open by that time of the year. Reached the top of the Cleaver as the sun rose below us. Had the summit to ourselves, only 2 others from an RMI group had summited that day before us. Took our time heading back to Camp Muir and spent the afternoon and night there again to savour the whole experience.

Long day from Camp Sherman. Summit and all the way out to the car. Beautiful route to a very windy summit. Many thanks to Jeff, Laurie and Tracy for inviting me along. Great part of the world.

Got up early and headed to summit before RMI teams. Made for a quick approach (no waiting for folks) and some private time on the summit. Strong winds (45+) made the climb harder. A nice boot path all the way up. Views were amazing, though clouds prevented seeing much beyond the surrounding area.

Beautiful weather, but we turned back right after getting on Disappointment Cleaver because of a team member's minor injury.

Climbed Rainier via the Emmons Glacier Route, with IMG. It was an awesome climb, in an equally awesome weather. On the top, we experienced some high winds, but, overall, the climb, weather, teammates, guides, and scenery was Excellent!

I suppose the conditions are changing constantly on that
mountain. I did it in August of 1984.

Had an unsuccessful attempt in 2002. Reached the top with my sisters and dad in 2003. This time I was there when my brother reached the top. Great trip!

A great day on the route. We missed the alpine start due to high winds, but they died down in the morning and stayed that way the rest of the day. We were able to get up and back down before dark by moving quickly. All in all, one of my best experiences in the mountains!

I climbed this with the University of Idaho Outdoor Program when I was in grad school. This was a huge climb. It was my first 14,000 footer, my first glacier climb and my first 2 day climb. This was a long slog and we were all pretty tired by the time we summited. I lost 2 water bottles along the way and was pretty dehyrated by the time we made it back down to Camp Muir. It sure is a fun descent from Camp Muir, we were able to glissade pretty much all the way down. At that point in my life this had been my hardest physical experience and it will always be a trip well worth remembering.

Two friends and myself made our way to the cold and windy summit around 9:00 am. The view was great from the top!!! Took the DC route.
