My first time on a real glacier. Loved it and caught the real mountaineering bug.

Just my Wife and I, Early start from IM flats, cold weather with the wind. Came up 500 ft short. Will take another shot at it next year. I really liked the DC , lot of fun. Best to go early in the season with snow on the cleaver in my opinion

So Hot on the D Cleaver  Sucess!

Made it to the top on a very sunny and hot day. No matter how much sunscreen we put on it didn't keep us from burning. It was totally worth it though! Thank you Mount Rainier for the beautiful weather!

Ingraham Direct  Sucess!

Nice climb on a day with perfect weather. It was fun to find our own path of least resistance to the top. No-one around high on the mountain this early in the season. Perfect!

Disappointment's Cleaver  Sucess!

Didn't see the summit till reaching camp Muir. It was super cloudy, lot's of snow from the beginning. Very fun climb. Left at 1 am and got to the summit at 9 am- little on the slow side. Wow. What a mountain.

DC- great beginner's route. Was my first mountain and didn't go through a guide service. We took a 3 day trip and practiced techniques at Camp Muir on the 2nd day. Way fun, got me hooked.

A perfect start from Muir at 1am with a blanket of stars and crisp air. At 13,600 ft. freezing rain and winds around 40 mph just before sunrise. I was sorry that the mountain turned us around but I look forward to another attempt in 2014. A great experience on a beautiful mountain.

Dissapointment cleaver  Sucess!

a great day summitting rainier in 2011!! We climbed Dissapointment cleaver. This year 2012 we tried again but were unsuccessful due to massive snowstorm. We only reached 13,000 ft this time before having to descend back to camp. we waited out storm for two days then went to Mt.Hood instead.

Great Sunrise  Sucess!

A 4th of July climb via the Emmons that was awesome. Due to winds most parties threw in the towel early but staying one more day set the stage for sharing the summit with one other person!

Cold! Altitude hit me pretty good. First time up Rainier. I'm hooked. Can't wait to go back for another climb.
