lcarreauDC Route in 1984  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 1984

lcarreau

When I made my sucessful summit climb of Rainier in 1984,
there were no cell phones or i-pods. Our guide was Randy
Sackett. We had to hurry it along past the cleaver. Two
climbers were left behind there. The snow conditions were
for the most part favorable. You never know on Rainier!

Summited via the DC route. A lot of fun. Stayed a Muir after summiting and enjoyed a wonderful sunset and great night of camping.

Stayed at Muir Camp the night before. Surprisingly there were only few people in the hut during the Independence weekend. We could hardly see anything around at the summit plateau due to the whiteout.

We planned on summiting from the south side (Camp Muir). It was pretty late in the season, so the size of the crevasses made navigation difficult. We got up 2am on summit day and started our ascend at 3am after a good night's sleep in Camp Muir's public shelter. However, we had difficulties finding the trails. From talking to other climbers at CM, I knew that we had to go around the Disappointment Cleaver and reascend on the other (east) side.
I didn't know that we actually had to cross over even further onto Emmons Glacier. So we started wandering around looking for these little red flags but only found old ones that seemed to have been abandoned a while ago. Anyhow, my partner was already pretty tired from the day before after not having slept well for two nights straight and he started complaining about his hurting legs early on. So we decided to turn around noonish and made it back to CM 2.5 hours later. After an hour-long nap we descended
towards Paradise Visitor Center, which was painfully long after a long day on the mountain. We arrived shortly after sunset. I'll try again next year earlier in the season and with more water supplies. Boiling snow is a painfully slow process and the glacier water didn't taste very well either ;)

After a very succesfull year I was bound to have a failed attempt. We tried the Emmons glacier route from Shurman. The forecast was for a storm with terrible winds and the forecast was dead on, but a day early. We made it to about 11,000 feet before the weather turned us around. There is always next year.

80F day on the Muir snowfield, nearly cooked us! On the plus side, it never got below 40F at basecamp that night, and the summit was nice and warm the following morning. Went via the DC route, one large crevasse with suspect snowbridge (RMI put a ladder across it days later, apparently).

Gorgeous! The trail going up dissapointment cleaver was very well trodden down. Impossible to get lost... Seeing the blue serracs was impressive. Can't wait to go back! We saw 3 boulders the size of cars fall near Ingram Glacier. eeeek! Walk quickly!

Saw a shooting star explode in the sky over on our way to the summit at about 2:00am. Even made a noise! Still can not believe to this day. I will have to double check my date is right...

Did the Emmons route on July 7th, 2007. Weather was perfect, route was in great shape, a few large crevasse crossings but pretty smooth sailing the rest of the way.

Not this time. My first backpacking trip ever. It was super hot. 2 day RMI climb. 4 day trip would have been much nicer and more likely to summit. DC rocks with crampons really isn't that pleasant! Despite the earlier hear I fell in love with my parka north of DC. I'll be back next year!

After two other unsuccessful ascents of Rainier on two different routes (due to weather and timing issues), I decided to guide a group of friends up. It was a very rewarding experience to get two inexperienced climbers up and safely down Mt. Rainier:)

LONG summit day, but lovely weather and we all made it to the top. The alternate route down and around the cleaver makes the climb more interesting, but longer. It was my Dad's 30th time on the summit.
