DC  Sucess!

My wife and I climbed it on our 9th aniversary, had a great time passing guided groups, met a lot of cool people.

I Love Rainer  Sucess!

By far the baddest peak in the lower 48. My first summit was by the Kautz Glacier, second by Liberty Ridge. Wish I lived closer - I'd be in much better shape.

Disappointment Cleaver  Sucess!

What a wonderful Mountain. I had the time of my life. I can hardly wait until I can climb it again. Summit #1

My favorite place  Sucess!

This particular time was the third time I've summited Rainier (second for the summer of 2006) and my roomate and I spent the night on the summit. It was a leisurely 3 day trip up the Emmons in almost ideal weather (a little drizzle while bivied up the Emmons on top of the corridor).

Best and Worst day  Sucess!

What an experience. We had nice weather, with a little bit of snow while we slept at Muir. I'd say this was one of the hardest things i've done, but was also one of the most satisfying. I hope to do lots of other great peaks like Rainier.

DC  Sucess!

Great straightforward climb. Spent an extra day at the high camps which made the summit day feel alot easier than previous Rainier climbs. Even with the crowds Rainier is a always a great experience.

Disappointment Cleaver  Sucess!

We had a perfect clear, cold day to climb the Disappointment Cleaver route on Mount Rainer we made the summit a little before 7am.

variation of normal  Sucess!

no snow and a dry year made for very challenging conditions on the dissapointment cleaver route. no one had summited due to a very open glacier. we found a way through it by going a differnt way, but still not very difficult. had trouble jumping a big crevasse on the way up and really screwed up my knee jumping it on the way down. us and two others were only ones to summit that least 30 people tried, even a guided group.
long way down with a hurt knee, no climbs for awhile after that.

Ingraham Direct  Sucess!

Wow - I loved my Rainier experience. Big mountain feel. Watching the headlamps of teams leaving camp Muir at 1AM is a sight I will never forget!

DC Route in PERFECT conditions!!  Sucess!

A great climb from start to finish! Joined up with 3 other SP'ers that took the time to show a newbie the correct/safe way to climb a mountain.

Good send  Sucess!

I climbed it twice; once last summer and then a few years back. This first time was up through Camp Schurman, very cool route. The second time was up DC. A lot mellower but still fun. I think a winter ascent would be sweet.

Perseids...  Sucess!

Climbed Rainier up the chossy DC route during Perseids with a couple of awesome friends. We decided to go light and do it with one push from the cars, stopping only briefly at the Ingraham Flats to melt some snow. Got up to the flats, stopped for about 2 hours, and then continued up. We were on at the top of the cleaver by 1PM to be absolutely stunned by the meteor showers taking place! Green streaks and flashes across the sky. A truly magical moment. We breaked often to sit back and watch the show. We made it to the summit at 4AM, took a 30 minute nap, full of compulsive shivering and then watched sunrise from the crater rim. No wind and perfect weather... Mmmm

DC while at the HP convention  Sucess!

A couple friends and I decided to climb Rainier before the 2004 Highpoint convention that was held in Pullyup. We opted for the DC route and spent two days on the mtn. We had perfect weather and had a somewhat restful night at the Muir hut. Three years later I still remember the miserable hike back to the car on the paved Paradise trails in my plastic boots. The extra weight of running shoes in the pack would have been worth their weight in gold!

Tahoma Glacier  Sucess!

Great trip- perfect weather- not a cloud for 4 straight days. Snow was a bit soft on descent.

Physically there. Mentally not into it. Cold, Windy, Foggy. Will be back to savor the experience again with a different attitude.
