hahaha... so, the north face of Mount Rainier looks like Broad Peak. The only problem is that it's about 17,000 feet shorter. But, Mount Rainier would be very happy to hear that it has been compared to Broad Peak.
Many thanks Karrar for such a great comment, and the visit,
All the best,
Hi Charles, Most people who aspire to do the north face of Rainier climb the north ridge which is called Liberty Ridge. Liberty Ridge is a great climb, but it should be done in early season. I have a story of our climb coming out soon, and we did it late in the season with many mishaps.
Thanks for the visit,
Brought back memories of our climb of the ridge back in June of 91. Three unprepared climbers that made it up without any protection. Little did we know at that time what we had gotten ourselves into. Thank God that we had good weather.
I am working on a trip report right now. It has been quite a few years since we did the ridge, but the memories are clear as day to me. I feel that we got lucky we did not perish on the mountain.
Thanks for dropping by Jim,
