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!

Re: Successful Summit- Emmons Route

One day made all the difference. The previous day, July 13, we had gotten shut down on this route.

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.

Fierce Weather Wins

Weather got increasingly worse after we left Camp Shurman. One of our two rope teams made it to 13,000 feet but then it was turn around or else....

Emmons is the one  Sucess!

My first Rainier climb and a lot of fun. In August, the Inter Glacier was the most exciting with lots of bare ice and rockfall - felt like dodgeball. Finding our way to Camp Schurman was also a little tricky, there are many ways to get there but all involve scrambling loose rocks or skirting big crevasses. There was water at Camp Schurman and no winds for us. The route itself above Camp Schurman was "well traveled" and felt more straightforward and safer. The bergschrund was absolutely monstrous but doable by skirting to the north. All in all a great way to get up Rainier and not have to take the DC.

2nd time's a charm  Sucess!

After getting turned around by weather at 12,000' last year, it was a thrill to get to the summit this season!

Made it!  Sucess!

Climbed with 3 but only 2 of us summited. Great weekend for weather, and what a great route! Schurman was a great camp as well.
