I'm planning to do the DC route on the first weekend in September, but I think I will have to be very lucky to summit.
So here is my scoop. I'm a beginner. I climbed Hood, Colchuck and Silver Star in May. I will take a 5 day mountaineering course on Baker in August and have Shuksan, Adams/Mazama Glacier, and Rainier as follow up climbs. They will be back to back.
I'm looking for experienced climbers who will be comfortable at the level I am right now to do Rainier on July 28th and 29th. It's the only weekend I am available.
If you already have a group going that I could join, I would like to be a group of 3 people max.
If you can go with me, or if I can join your group, please, do not reply here, but email me instead firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm only posting this because... let's just say I do believe in miracles... lol
