Rainier in a Day  Sucess!

I now understand why not very many people climb Rainier in a single day. This was much harder than doing it in 2 days. The DC is getting pretty broken up but is still manageable for the time being. There is currently only 1 ladder crossing and 1 sketchy zone which it seems as though there may have been a ladder a few weeks earlier there.

1st summit!  Sucess!

Summited via Disappointment Cleaver with Alpine Ascents group. Started with 8 at Paradise, 2 dropped before Muir, remaining 6 summited just before 6:00AM after leaving Ingraham Flats around 1:00AM. Perfect windless night but very warm on the descent.

Yay!!  Sucess!

3rd attempt, 1st successful. Disappointment Cleaver route with RMI guides. One guy brought a 6 pack of Rainier beer to the top. Beer was good. Some other group brought fireworks and champagne. It was a very warm day.

Every member of out party summited, over 60 guys in the Army. The climbing rangers said they thought that was a record.

Too much snow

Snowstorm came through just before our attempt -- I don't think anybody summitted for a day or two.

Via the Disappointment Cleaver  Sucess!

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.
