Trip: Rainier - Winthrop (Emmons)

 

Date: 8/18/2012

 

Trip Report:

Short version:

Red Bull. Up, up, up. Red Bull. WTF? Up, up, up. Yahoo! Down, down, down. Tracks! Down, coffee, down, glissade, down. Beer.

 

Long version:

Gear Notes:

The route is spicy. Take more gear than you typically would for the Emmons.

 

Approach Notes:

Inter is still in good shape. Glissaded the whole thing in two shots.

Nice write up CascadeClimber, and an impressive ascent!

 

You picked the right day, Saturday night it blew hard and rained at Schurman, and no one had much fun.

 

FYI, the "AJ" you mention on your blog was actually "JR." A hazard of two-letter names, I guess.

Hey Clive- thanks for the correction- I've fixed the TR. Amazing that he remembered me from that climb in 2006.

 

Nice to see you both up there. Sorry the weather went south.

Hey thanks for the TR, especially the beta about the crack at 11,000 ft! Did a one-day climb yesterday on the Emmons-Winthrop and that saved us plenty of time.
