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.

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.

DC's in great shape!  Sucess!

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.

Slog in early season  Sucess!

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...

Perfect day for a day hike  Sucess!

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!
