One of the best weather days on Mount Rainier.
Bad weather for most of the climb until the last 2,000 feet.
Hiked the first day in the rain/snow to 10,500. Climbed to the summit the next night. Great route and great conditions.
Summitted with a group of 4 other strangers I met on CC.com. A bit windy but had great climb on the Emmons Route and I definitely learned alot and gained some new friends!!!
Was a beautiful day on the Mountain. Summit had clear skys with little wind!
WOW!!!! We couldn't have bought better weather!! This is #2 for me
Climbed it with a few friends. Winds and rain caused us to hold off a day before heading up to Camp Muir. Turned out to be the right call, summit day we had crystal clear skies and some gusts to maybe 30 mph, a beautiful day for a summit! Bumped into Ed Viesturs inside the crater. Hope to be back and up a different route.
Climbed with a guided group in 2003.
Our unguided group of five made it to the top just before noon on 22 July 2011 despite bad winds. Amazing experience.
We shortened a planned three day trip into two to beat a disturbance moving in faster than expected. Getting onto the DC was the only minor difficulty, and fixed lines minimized the risk. The crevasses hadn't opened up yet.
breaking trail in deep snow years is exhausting. supposedly this is the king of america's 48, but I'd go with the northern rockies...
RK, RP and I hiked up the Gib Ledges with a nice view of the Nisqually rockfall and down the DC route. Car-2-car in about 15.5 hours. Great day on the mountain with great company!
We had some of the best conditions yet this season, couldn't ask for a better trip
Enjoyed a trip up Rainier via the Kautz on the 4th of July.
We made it to the top via the DC Route. What an amazing experience. I will be back to summit again!!!
Too many people. "Not a wilderness experience".
6/25/11- via Emmons Glacier. There was alot of snow
05/09/17- Via a Finger with Thatcher and Tobin. Descended the DC and skied from the Cadaver Gap back to car
09/06/17- via the Kautz Route. Camped at Hazard. Descent via DC.
Route was in great shape and the weather was fantastic. Got enjoy the summit with my wife even, which was awesome! Couldn't have asked for a better day to summit.
