Emmons  Sucess!

Climbed in a three day trip, which was fairly leisurely; a real haul but no technical challenges.

Beautiful climb and weather  Sucess!

Spectacular weather. Perfect snow. Summited with 2 other fellow clients of AAI and 2 guides.

A fine reroute up the Winthrop  Sucess!

Climbed her 3 days after a fresh reroute up the Winthrop. It was nice direct route, quite exposed in the lower section, but that just added to the fun!

Enjoyable Climb  Sucess!

Had great condition and weather this trip up the Emmons. Not that many people either, there were 8 of us in total climbing the route. Much more enjoyable, and slightly more technical than the DC.

Finally got this one  Sucess!

I finally got fed up with doing the DC route over and over and got an opportunity to do this route. Very enjoyable, great perspective of the mountain, and a good route. I would recommend this route over the DC.

Beautiful window   Sucess!

Avvy conditions on Tuesday and hi winds on Thursday but one perfect window on Wednesday! We had the route entirely to ourselves. Fantastic first trip to an amazing area.

Had to turn around

Wonderful weather, but someone on my rope was not up to the challenge that day

Beautiful Weather  Sucess!

Amazing weather on Rainier. Route was in amazing shape. A little slushy on the way down, but other than that perfect.

1st Time Up  Sucess!

Large 5 person team comprised of 1 person with many summits, 3 with attempts via the DC, and 1 first attempt. Made it up with perfect route conditions, only one sketchy crevasse crossing having to jump across and up and then jump down on the way back. VERY hot on the way down, but the corridor provided for some great controlled glissading cooling us off and knocking off some descent time.

nice outing  Sucess!

Fun hike/climb/glacier walk. Camped out on Emmons glacier, nice weather, many small crevasses.

First Indie Trip to Rainier  Sucess!

Finally cut the training wheels off and did it with some friends. Mostly a slog, but a good outing with good guys nonetheless.

Route in great shape  Sucess!

Approach is melted out to approximately above Glacier Basin. Emmons is very straightforward with only a couple minor crevass crossings that won't get much worse for at least a little while. Upper route splits in two, one direct over the bergschrund, the other traversing more gently around to the saddle of Liberty Cap.
Epic 1,400' glissade track below 12,000', and again for the entire length of the Interglacier. Many skiers report upper mountain a bit too firm to be fun on top, good enough in the middle, perfect on Interglacier.

Great hike  Sucess!

Super fun! A lot of soft snow, but all the more of a work out!

Successful Summit- Emmons Route  Sucess!

High winds pounded us from the Interglacier to Camp Schurman, but a late summit bid (4:30 AM start) was the winning ticket. Summit day was clear and calm- as was the descent. 7.5 hours to Columbia Crest- and amazing views from the top.
