[TR] Mount Rainier- Disappointment Cleaver 7/30/2005

Recommended Posts

Super awesome job! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

 

Thanks for the great pictures too. In fact I'm there in the madding crowd (in the Camp Muir photo). Unfortunately, my friend got badly sick due to altitude (I think she got a minor case of HAPE - at least the symptoms indicated that). We probably took one of the longest times out in the upper mountain, but she managed to get down in one piece. Apart from that, I had a great climb on a near perfect night/day.

glad you were successful, Pup! Hopefully next season we'll be able to match schedules and climb together.

Soloing Rainier is pretty gutsy.

 

Sure looks a lot drier up there since Sept of '82...

 

Sad, really...

Was it raining then?

 

Ref was receding glaciers actually.

 

Looking at the traverse below the "icefall" has changed a lot.

 

Sept of '82 when my brother and I climbed it, seemed like much more snow/ice was there...

 

xxx looks to be a man of few words lol.
