      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!

Rianier May-June

Recommended Posts

Curtis, Ptarmigan, Kautz, Lib Ridge. Im a lowlander from ohio. Go ahead chuckle chuckle. Looking for someone that would be awesome enough to pick me up from sea airport and drop me back off at airport after climb and drinks. Ill toss you some money for gas and buy you drinks and whatnot. 26 in good enough shape to keep up with some of you highlanders. Im serious as hell Id like to get a taste of some earlier climbing such as mid may. Whatever is cool. Thanks

So, you need a ride from SeaTac airport to Mt Rainier, and then back? I'll do it. I have a truck big enough for you and all your gear. Say $100 round trip? That seems pretty reasonable.

Kautz route really isn't in until late June/July. And What Void said, Resume is prob the most important thing, if you haven't done any big stuff yet, you prob need to slog up the DC/ID/Emmons/Gib Ledges route first.

Maybe you should learn how the spell Rainier first before you get all worked up about climbing it.

I grew up in Toledo also, best decision I ever made was leaving that place. Is that one of the signs posted along the Ottawa River by chance?

yes, i remember as a kid when those signs went up. i lived in point place neighborhood northeast of summit street and shoreland avenue. I also remember the summer of 1994 when Perstorp was unloading their formeldahyde into the river because it was cheaper than paying for disposal. waking up in the middle of a humid night to the horrid stench of a dying river that turned completely anaerobic [die fish, die]. I'd like to think these types of environ horror as a child steeled my appreciation for less tainted areas.
