oconnellrDC route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2009


Drove down to the Longmire parking lot from Vancouver in the evening, hiked up to Camp Muir the following day, left the hut around 2:30 for a slow slog up the DC route. Off track in the cleaver following a group ahead of us which wasted some time, by still a slow summit by 10:30. Back to the hut, nap for a couple hours, hike back to the parking lot, and drive back to Vancouver by about 1am. Impressive glaciers!

Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2001
Summited with AlexeyD (my then 16-year old son). Don't remember the exact date. Camped at Ingram Flats - (beautifull), acclimatized, and then summited and spent the night in the crater (planned) - very neat experience.

Climbed it in 96, 97, and 98. We didn't make the summit in 98 due to weather. Always in March/April. Winter accents in prep for Denali. Tele ski down from Camp Muir. Good times to RMI / parking lot.

EpicaRMI 5-day seminar  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2008


I finally decided to get some training so I could start climbing bigger mountains... so I went back to Mt Rainier after 15 years! Partly clear on the way to Camp Muir, then a total white-out on the way to the summit, but we made it! I want to go back so I can actually see the summit next time!

EpicaJansport sponsored trip, 1993
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 1993


I was working for Popular Outdoor Outfitters and won a Jansport sponsored trip to Mt Rainier. It was my first time on a big mountain and I loved it. Unfortunately there was a huge storm and we did not attempt a summit.. but I got to meet famous mountaineers and the founders of Jansport and Rainier Mountaineering Inc. And I knew I would go back someday.....

cabIngraham Direct & DC  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2009


Climbed with RMI as part of their Expedition Skills Seminar. Had a lot of fun and climbed with a great group of people which really made it a memorable trip. Went up the Ingraham Glacier and down the DC. Route wasn't too difficult and I learned a lot.

dirthDo it in a day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2009


If I go up again I'm doing it in one day. Especially if you have skis. We left paradise at noon, at the flats by 5. Left the flats at 3 am, on top by 8:30, and that was primarily because we got stuck behind 50 other people. Left the top at 9:30 and were driving home by 2. Seems ideal to leave paradise at 10 pm and book it up to the flats by 2 am and then get in line with 1000 other people and slog up to the top. Great climb though, fun exposure and crevasses in places. Beautiful sunrise.

scottmitchtwo attempts one day
Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2009


Short notice with fellow SPer DC route. He wasnt feeling good around Ingram Flats so back to Muir. Got on with another team leaving later and turned back at 12400 on top of cleaver with members of that team not feeling so good. A little disappointing but still a great day on the mountain.

JakesterThird times the Charm!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 16, 2009


Finally. Third attempt was a success. The weather at Camp Muir was warm and clear. We left camp at 11pm so we wouldn't get caught behind any of the guided groups. Many wide open crevasses along the route and many sketchy crossings. Very windy and cold the last 2000 ft.
