  1. Hello All - I will be in Seattle for work next week and would like to join a party if you are planning to climb Rainier the weekend of Aug 24. I climbed (summited all) Mt. Whitney early this year, Mt. Shasta four weeks ago (on my own), and Mt. Elbert last week. I did a mountaineering course with Alpine Ascents last year in the North Cascades including crevasse rescue and repeated a two day crevasse rescue class in Colorado Rockies this summer. I am in a pretty good physical shape and hopefully add some value to your group. Would like to climb Rainier as I am trained and in Seattle next week rather than wait till next summer. Any leads are appreciated. Thanks.
  2. Dear All, We are visiting OHSU in Portland for work, on July 18. Would love to stay to do some mountaineering between Portland and Vancouver till July 23. I'm an experienced mountaineer, but have never been to Pacific North West. Looking for a reliable partner - Mount Rainier would be an obvious target, but happy to join any other trip - Hood, Olympus, Adams, Jefferson, Baker... between Portland and Vancouver. . See below some basic info about me. Just PM me if you are in the area on those days, and open to potentially team up ! Thanks Vaclav About me: - Entrepreneur/CEO of a medtech company based in Oxford UK,. - Member Academic Alpine Club Zurich (AACZ), Oxford University Mountaineering Club, Austrian Alpine Club. - Have climbed 40+ peaks of comparable or higher difficulty to Rainier at 4000m-7000m elevation.Experience gained mostly in the Alps, Andes, Caucasus, Pamir, Altay. - Physically demanding but not very technical climb on French PD or AD would be ideal for this trip. I have done routes up to French D, but would not be as ambitious with unknown people - Highly safety conscious. Every couple of years i repeat glacier rescue training, and have real-world experience in rescue situations involving other climbers/skiers. - At the moment, i do not plan to bring skis given reported poor snow conditions, but could.
  3. Dear All, How partnering for Mt Rainier during July 18/9 - July 23 ? Hood, Adams, Jefferson, Olympus, Baker .... - or any more interesting peak between near Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. I'm from Europe, nowadays based in Oxford UK, visiting OHSU in Portland for business on July 17/18. Unfortunately I don't know any mountaineers in Pacific North West, so keen to team up ! I am comfortable to lead such climbs technically, with a reliable partner, but unfortunately won't have much time to do research for routes/maps. I'm experienced in both alpine and ski mountaineering, having done 40+ high altitude peaks of comparable/higher technical difficulty than Rainier between 14,000 and 24,000 feet, and practice crevasse and avalanche rescue almost every year. Member of Academic Alpine Club Zurich (AACZ). Good endurance - I have done up to 20 hour mountain routes and up to 16,000 uphill feet in one long day. Not as fit at the moment, but 7,000 feet uphill/day is still fine. Thanks, Vaclav
  4. experienced guy from Minnesota planning to trek to Muir on 7/19 would like to find a team to join for summit push via standard route / DC if possible. i have previously climbed Mt. Baker (twice) via the Coleman / Deming Route and Glacier Peak via Disappointment Peak Route. Have never done Rainier. I lost 100lbs this last year and have been working out continuously for the past year (classes at the gym, long hikes, yoga, nutrition). i always thought i'd never cross Rainier off because of being overweight but now i want to kick some butt! If you have room for one more please let me know! thanks, tommy h
  5. Hey everyone, I am looking for partners for climbing this summer in the Cascades or doing Rainier/Adams this summer. My timeframe is open and tentative but looking to come there anytime for a WEEK or a bit more if hitting up multiple mountains in quick succession during June or July. I am interested in doing Shuksan, Adams, Rainier atleast (not all of them but some of them based on what partners decide) for now but open to suggestions from others and dependent on what others are interested too. Just want to get out to the west and climb some mountains and get experience. I am from Atlanta and will be travelling to Seattle April end for a mountaineering course up Mt. Baker, going to Mexico for Iztaccihuatl May end and hoping to fix a plan for Mt. Shasta via the Avalanche Gulch during June/July. Message me if interested in partnering up.
  6. Climbing Liberty Ridge on Rainier June 6-9. Our third had to drop out last minute due to a job offer, and we are interested in finding a replacement if there is a good fit. We are totally okay with going as a two-man team if we think that’s the best option but open to adding a third of their climbing resume is good and personality seems like a decent fit. First time on LR for both of us, but multiple Rainier climbs via DC and Kautz for both of us as well as plenty of experience on steep alpine ice/rock/snow at altitude. Hit me up if interested and let me know your experience. We have wilderness camping reservations for a group of 3.
  7. Hi, I’m an avid scrambler/climber from Alberta looking to connect with someone interested in a 1-day ascent of Rainier. I recognize that this is a pretty strenuous goal as that is almost 3000 metres cumulative elevation gain in a single day and I would anticipate a significantly long day starting from the trailhead at Paradise at or before midnight. i am considering timing in late June or July. Will depend on partner. I’d be driving from Alberta and would have a backup plan as well for other mountain(s) if this falls together. Shoot me a note if you are interested. We’ll want to check each other’s availability, experience, etc. A couple of relevant videos: White Pyramid feature in Gripped.com https://gripped.com/gripped-outdoors/watch-snow-trek-to-top-of-rockies-white-pyramid/ Mount Hector (Alberta)

    Crampons found last week on the way down from Camp Muir. Message me with the details.
  13. Kautz Conditions?

    Fellow climbers! Has anybody recently got on the Kautz route on Rainier? I climbed the Fuhrer Finger a couple weeks ago, and on our way up, there were plenty of folks who were shooting for the Kautz coming down because they heard that it was no good. I also heard from several IMG guides that it was no good. Unfortunately, none of these people had actually seen the would-be uncrossable obstacle in person. I did give the rangers a phone call asking about conditions, and they said that things were normal up there though. I'm yet to see a trip report here or a route tick on Mountain Project, so I am not quite sure what to believe.. Any good info would be much appreciated! I'm hoping to go up there this upcoming weekend.
  14. All done. Just don't know how to take the post down.
  15. Rainier DC June 23 & 24

  16. Lib Ridge?

    Hi all, Anyone been on Rainier recently? A buddy and I are gonna try to squeeze in a Liberty Ridge climb (up Lib Ridge, ski down the Emmons) in the next couple weeks (shooting for sometime before May 13th). I know it's still early season, but I was wondering if anyone had been up that way recently? I saw the aerial photo up on the Rainier Climbing blog, but haven't found much beyond that. Thanks for any conditions beta!
  17. My climbing partner just cancelled because of a dislocated shoulder injury, and I have already booked my flights to Seattle for 8 days. I am a fairly experienced mountaineer, having done Aconcagua, Elbrus, Mont Blanc and Kilimanjaro in the past (without guide). After this week in Seattle I will fly to Anchorage to attempt Denali.However, I do not like the idea of doing the glacier travel on Rainier solo, so I would love someone to rope up with. I am a 22 year old Norwegian, and are currently studying for a Master of Science at MIT in Boston. I have all the gear necessary except tent, but I might be able to borrow this in Seattle.Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions! tlf: 617 710 9297 Facebook: Thomas Lone Email: thomasel@mit.eduClimb on!Thomas
