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.

Dissapointment Cleaver in 24 hours  Sucess!

Climbed the DC leaving the car at 5 PM and returning to it at close to 5 PM the next day. We had a very limited time/weather window. I think we got about 2 or 3 hours of sleep at Camp Muir. It was awsome!

Disappointment cleaver/ Ingraham Glacier route  Sucess!

A couple of successful ascents, both from Muir to the Ingraham. Thanks to my partners Dan Logan (in 1979) and Big John Anderson (1984)

Perfect Weather Window  Sucess!

From Paradise to Muir, we had low vis, snow, wind...loved the rime ice that collected on us. Quick nap and it was off to the summit via DC. Couldn't ask for better weather, clear sky, freezing temps, light winds..... Descent from Muir to Paradise really sucked with post-holing and shit but we were just thrilled to have summitted between all the lousy weather this month. :)

Hiked in late on 8/31, acclimated all day 9/1, and made a push at 1am on 9/2. Got to the top of the Cleaver @ 6am, only another 1800ft and 2.5 hrs ish to the top, but partner had to turn around. Conditions were prime - no snow, rain, bluebird both days up high. Too many people generally speaking for my taste

Winthrop Glacier  Sucess!

Got up in time to watch the sun rise. Enjoyed this route much more than the DC route.

From camp at Ingram Flats with Murad, Goran and Thomas. Respectable peak.

Summit!  Sucess!

Took the dc route and made Columbia crest. 40 mph winds at summit but great weather on the way down. Awesome trip

3 day Muir climb

Started at Paradise and camped at Muir, then at Ingraham Flats. Got turned around at ~12,000 ft. on summit day due to graupel buildup and avalanche danger.

DC  Sucess!

Great weather up to 13,000 feet. Then wind picked up visibility dropped to less than 30 feet. The trail was great and allowed us to push to the true summit, which made the long hike down to the car a little bit more enjoyable!

winthrop route  Sucess!

My first time up Rainier, and by the very interesting Winthrop re-route of the usual Emmons-Winthrop (late summer 2012). First day up to Schurman, then spent a day acclimatizing and resting, then hit the summit on the third day. Intermediate protection was needed (several pickets), a few scary spots.

First summit, ever.  Sucess!

I've been planning this hike for several years, and finally decided last fall that this summer was going to be the time. Celebrated my 61st birthday on Ingraham Flats, then summited the next morning at about 6:34AM. It was difficult, but not as tough as I had imagined. The best part was around 3am when we stopped at the top of DC, and I wasn't tired, or out of breath. It was then that I knew that was going to make it.
