Tales from the far side  Sucess!

After a couple of summits from Camp Muir, I'm so glad I finally did this Emmons-Winthrop route. The approach is much more scenic, Camp Sherman is a far better base, it has one tenth the crowds, and the climb is three times as fun. I'm stoked for a winter climb now!

DC  Sucess!

Lots of fun. Easier than I trained for (fortunately).

Ingraham direct  Sucess!

Summit with RMI team up the Ingraham direct. Cold and windy after the Flats. No views up top to speak of...

Amazing Trip!

Perfect conditions, icy in AM, not a lot of postholing until later in the day. No summit thanks to altitude sickness, but can't wait to try it again in 2011!

3 crystal clear days with good friends and good beer at the bottom!

Great time!  Sucess!

Crazy wind storm on the decent (over 70mph sustained clue what the gusts were). Good times with the guys from RMI.

Emmon's Glacier  Sucess!

Had an awesome time. First time on a glaciated peak and loved it, can't wait for more

State HP #36  Sucess!

Calvin and Caj summitted after climbing the Further Finger route up the mountain. Pat and Eva went back to camp after about an hour.
The Finger route was really steep but with nice snow in the morning.
This is the 4th highest state highpoint.
Eva and I had to eventually get back for her to summit too. More on this later.

DC First timer!  Sucess!

Summited on our first try at the peak! Camped at the flats and took the summit the next day. Beautiful weather other than the wind (I could barely stand up on the crest). Awesome mountain but next time I'll need a harder route :)

Kautz/Hazard Route  Sucess!

Finally got to see Camp Hazard and the Kautz up close. The conditions were awesome until we got to the summit plateau, at which time we were suddenly being blasted with hurricane force winds. We decided to nix a trip to Columbia Crest as we had successfully completed our route. The Kautz, for me, was a bit of an ass kicker. However, the ice was in good shape and the trip was without many flaws.

Emmons  Sucess!

Emmons is wonderful route. Camping at above Steamboat Prow provided great views. Great weather and fairly easy route-finding. Lost a camera case and had an encounter with a friendly bear.
All-in-all a fantastic trip.

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!

great trip up but found clouds at the summit.

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 Day hike  Sucess!

Day hiked from Paradise, with 9000 ft. gain-via Disappointment Cleaver. Beautiful clear blue skies and sunny conditions. Amazing peak

Rainier  Sucess!

Went up Disappointment Clever with RMI Guides. This was my first climbing experience, my college graduation present.

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!

Climbed the DC route in probably the best possible conditions ever! Great day on the mountain!

Reached the summit last July, great conditions w/ some decent winds just above the cleaver. Great climb.
