1st Rainier Climb  Sucess!

The 2nd most popular route on the mountain. Rainier is very fun and rewarding. Much better than the DC. Less people and no rock fall danger and more direct!

Nice climb. The weather was great, the route was in poor condition, however. See the trip report.

OSAT - 1st Rainier Climb

In 1991 the first climb of Rainier by One Step At a Time (OSAT) resulted in 24 of 35 climbers summiting. Most had begun the year with no mountaineering experience. Every year since the the OSAT Glacier Climbing Class has resulted in several successful climbs of Mt. Rainier.

I've done the route 3 more times since. I've done it as 3 and 4 day trips,too. You can go up to Glacier Basin the first afternoon, then haul up to Schurman the next day and get a longer rest before the summit day. Spending a day at Emmons Flats "laying around like marmots" and watching the other teams come and go can be fun, too, but I would not recommend spending a day down by the hut.

Climbed the Emmons with a group of 8 climbers. One climber became ill during our summit attempt so my wife and I descended with her. We'll be back next year to climb it again. Great weather, great friends and a tough mountain to climb.

Less rockfall danger than other routes but plenty of crevasses and snowbridge crossings. Overall, a very nice route.
