"Trip of a lifetime. Went with a guided IMG trip. 3 days. Day 1 left Paradise up the Muir Snowfields to Camp Muir. Arrived late afternoon. A few hours to get setup for the night and enjoy the day. Day 2 did ice axe, self arrest, rope work training on the top of the Cowlitz Glacier. Then hiked up to Ingraham flats for a short 1.5hrs. Got set up and enjoyed the sunshine and had a briefing on whats to be expected the next morning. Went to 'bed' at 5pm ish. Slept for 3 hours. Then up at midnight to get ready for the summit push. Departed at 1:26am up through the Dissapointment Cleaver, across the " - Mount Rainier, MarkJPerkins, Sep 16, 2017
"Climbed with Alpine Ascents via the Disappointment Cleaver. Route had collapsed the previous week so we were the first to head up the new route.

The next morning I started on the trail around 6AM, wishing I’d woken up earlier. The ascent was spectacular. 5mph winds, no clouds, 40ish degrees. The only downside to the elements was the haze from the British Columbia fires. I never got a glimpse of Hood or MSH, and only a peak of Rainier (once I summited). I knew it was going to be warmer so I decided to go without ice axe (trekking poles only) figuring if an" - Mount Adams, zachmitch, Aug 9, 2017
" 0ther than being hot, perfect weather. Peak of wildflowers and alpine meadows. Summiters included a dog using claws for crampons, and a cyclist from Mongolia. First night at shelter in old growth forest. Second night at Glacier Gap. After summit, night at White Pass. Out the next day." - Glacier Peak, bobcarson, Jul 29, 2017
