You get a feel that Weekend Climber Productions is a home based business when you watch their films. This title is more interesting than their Denali DVD, and has an engaging interview with Eric Simonson, although the sound is terrible. There is a lot of good information in the video and I rate it a 3 star because of the information contained in it but low still because of the video/audio quality.

This is the best movie out of the Ascend series video collection as stated above it contains an almost encyclopidec amount of basic info on Rainier. How ever the quality is questionable.True climber's will still watch this. I am disapointed that the climbers in the video didn't compleat the climb they should of done that.Rent it if you can before you buy.
