Summit at last- DC route   Sucess!

Two man team, 50 plus mph wind. But otherwise, a legendary climb.

2 Day Emmons  Sucess!

Changed our itinerary from a 3 day to a 2 day climb due to bear activity in Glacier Basin. Great conditions with the route still intact. On top there was no wind and sunny skies. Camp Sherman still had some space open on bare rock. All members of the Moutaineer party summited. One or two had very mild altitude sickness symptoms.

Almost doesn't count...

My first experience at double-digit altitude. I recovered a mild bout of AMS 6 hours too late to head up with the summit team. I learned a lot and will be back next year.

Check!  Sucess!

I lead some friends and my friends dad to the top! Great practice roping up, tying prusiks, self arresting. Awesome peak! Went up Disappointment cleaver and hit 50/60mph winds at the top. blew us around a bit, but a beautiful peak.

A Big Mountain  Sucess!

First time attempting the peak. Drove from SLC with Duc and met some peeps in Boise for the carpool there. We started from Paradise late (1pm), slept for <4 hours at Camp Muir, before starting the summit push at 1:15am. We topped out at 8:15 after some waiting at the headwall and slow going higher up due to fatigue. A guided client had a seizure or something near teh headwall above the Cleaver so we got to see the rescue. We got back to Paradise by 5 thanks to the awesome glissade down the Muir Snowfield.

DC  Sucess!

Near full moon lit up the glacier with a nice purple glow. Straightforward route, but lots of traffic. Would like to try out one of the other routes someday.

DC  Sucess!

One beast of a mountain, more vertical than anything I've done previously, including high peaks in Peru.

Beautiful Weekend on the Emmons  Sucess!

A beautiful day up on the Emmons Route! Hiked into Glacier Basin on Friday night, Camp Shurman early Saturday, and hit the top at 7:00 AM on Sunday. Back to the cars by 3:30- definitely a cool way to spend a weekend!

1st attempt at Rainier via Emmons/Winthrop

1st time on Rainier and loved every minute of it. Made it to 12,600 before turning around due to a combination of onset of altitude sickness, deteriorating weather and general fatigue. No regrets or doubts and feel it was a 100% success. Excited to try it again next year.

So close but not close enough

The storm moved in so fast and Rainier had great amount of snow this winter.
