mandrakeMt. Rainier  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2008


Ascent via the Emmons Glacier. Crux was navigating through the crevasses in the dark. Ended up doing a high traverse beneath the bergshrund. Conditions were perfect -- long-sleeve t-shirt and a shell were all the layers needed until arriving at the saddle. Saw a bear in hiking out.

SnowsloggerThe big one for WA  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 1995


Finally climbed this one after two previous attempts. The one that got me into climbing in the first place, looking at a 14K snow-covered mountain from sea level in the middle of summer. Have since climbed it two more times (DC twice, Emmons once). Have also attempted the Kautz but got weathered off.

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!

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.

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.....
