DC in 24 hours  Sucess!

Climbed the DC leaving the car at 5 PM and returning to it at close to 5 PM the next day. We had a very limited time/weather window. I think we got about 2 or 3 hours of sleep at Camp Muir. It was awsome!

Better than expected  Sucess!

Part of a team of ten from Sierra Mountaineering Group that summitted via this route on a lucky weather window on a clear day. The route is scenic, not too hard but still definitely a taste of everything. Aside from all the other folks on the route, highly recommended.

Clear day  Sucess!

Climbed this route with a team of ten from SMG. Left Muir base camp around 1:30am and topped out at 8:30am. Some good climbing through the cleaver and a long steady climb though high break to the crater rim. It's a good feeling when your standing inside that crater because it really is just a short walk to Columbia Crest.

Perfect Weather Window  Sucess!

From Paradise to Muir, we had low vis, snow, wind...loved the rime ice that collected on us. Quick nap and it was off to the summit via DC. Couldn't ask for better weather, clear sky, freezing temps, light winds..... Descent from Muir to Paradise really sucked with post-holing and shit but we were just thrilled to have summitted between all the lousy weather this month. :)

Frozen ascents  Sucess!

Both me and my roommate went up in a complete wind storm, without ropes. We had left our to ladies lower on the snow field and continued on. The rangers had advised us of our poor choice of no ropes and when he saw our other members lower he immediately knew who they were apart of. Summitted just the same and it was incredibly windy at the top. Round two will be better!

D.C. climb  Sucess!

Just got on this forum so this is a late post. We climbed this last year on a beautiful day. Camped at Ingraham Flats and left in the dark. No wind, absolutely beautiful on top. I'm going to do it again this year. Here's a Youtube video of the climb. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFCKVPqhE7Q

DC with traverse of Emmons  Sucess!

Great Day for first summit attempt....and first time on Rainier. Just above the DC, a snowbridge collapsed injuring a climber. We waited for word on the route. It was detoured by the guide climbers so we decided to go that route. Safer route for newbies traversed above Emmons Glacier skirting around and over several crevasses, some large with snowbridges and some small enough to hop over. Very little wind at summit (none in crater) and abundant sun. Soft sloppy snow for decent all the way down to Paradise. At Camp Muir 6/25 and witnessed immense avalanche on Nisqually Glacier which sent a dirty snowshower down on Camp Muir. Occurred about a minute after small jet flew over summit...coincidence or just the sun's heat.
