Favorite climb  Sucess!

Second successful summit via the Ingraham Direct. Rainier is my favorite climb because it has almost everything a mountain can offer and is also close to my hometown. Will head back to climb every few years or so!

DC route  Sucess!

First time on Rainier. Didn't even see it until right before Camp Muir because of cloudy conditions. What a sight it was! Conditions just got better from there up to Ingraham flats. Glad we stayed at the flats instead of Camp Muir(zoo). Route was in good shape and we enjoyed beautiful weather on summit day. Was actually warmer at night then day before. Route was in good shape. All in all a great trip!

Rainier - DC route  Sucess!

Went up the DC route, great weather and good conditions. 9000' vertical really catches up with you at the top but great climb. Camped at Ingraham Flats, nice way to cut a little distance off summit day.

DC route  Sucess!

Hiked up to Camp Muir from Paradise on July 16, 2010. Spent four hours setting up camp, melting snow, and preparing and eating dinnner. Laid in the tent for a few hours. Started for the summit at 2:39 am on July 17, 2010. Took six hours to summit. Perfect clear day. Got back to Muir, packed up and hiked down to Paradise, then drove east. 44 hours later (from the morning of July 16) I finally got some sleep!!!

Disappointment Clever didn't disappoint  Sucess!

Spent the night at Ingraham Flats. Group got up at 2:30 AM and we did our best. And it was good enough. I was worried the altitiude would get to me but I did alright in good company. We took our time and summited around 6:30-ish (didn't have a watch). One of the best endurance tests I've ever had. Also a good leadership test. Great weather and teamwork made it possible.

Super cold day  Sucess!

Super cold climb with early season conditions. Ingraham Flats camp was a great place to make our summit bid from. I stayed up at the top of the crater rim while my three companions headed up to Liberty Cap.

Great July conditions on Emmons  Sucess!

Summitted with great conditions on Wednesday. There was also a guided group of ~15, an independent group of 9, and one or two smaller groups on the same day. Winds were pretty low at Schurman, snow was firm but not icy, and skies were clear.

Snow on the trail a mile or so before Glacier Basin. Saw a bear on the trail on the way up. No visible crevasses (and a great glissade descent) on the Inter Glacier. A couple of easily avoided crevasses between the top of IG and Schurman. Saw hummingbirds at camp.

Route was pretty direct up the corridor, with a bit of zigging and zagging near the top. Stepped across maybe five or six crevasses on the way up; most were still closed. Bergschrund was still just a step across (after a small traverse to the right).

Ingraham Direct  Sucess!

Epic! Attempted the Kautz Route but got weathered off. Went to Ingraham a week later and got the hard earned summit!

Skiing the Finger  Sucess!

Climbed the Fuhrer Finger. Absolute classic. Beautiful camp on the southern flank of the Wilson glacier. Perfect spring/early summer conditions. Left camp at 4:00 am and summited at 11:00 am. Ski descent back to camp by 1:30. My first time above 14,000.

Disappointment Cleaver  Sucess!

With Al and Chris. Poached a wanded route up. Had to duct tape my leather strapped crampons to my right foot, cuz it kept blowing off.

Came up the Emmons  Sucess!

40+mph winds. Somehow my helmet came unbuckled and it almost blew over the rim. Funny we saw three helmets and a pair of goggles laying in/on crevace lips and saw a real nice hard shell blow past us on the decent.
My first time on top, but not the last.
Climb on!
