      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Looking for a partner to ascend and descend Mount Rainier in single day push

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

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.

Hi Sam.  I currently have a group shooting for a time window from Jun 21-24 (incl. travel from Alberta).  Doesn’t seem like the timing will work, but if that time window doesn’t work for us, I will contact you.

Right now the guys I’m going with can only get up the 24th off, so that would be the day we are travelling home (approx. 18hr drive).

Darn. Definitely keep me in the loop about this trip. I may ditch my plans to make this work. Looks epic.
