The recent Alpine Ascents Rainier climbs of Liberty Ridge & the Emmons Glacier routes have been successful. 100% of our Liberty Ridge climbers made the summit with guides David Morton & Michael Horst. They reported good route conditions on the route. The Emmons route is also in good condition, and is a very direct route much of the way above Camp Shurman as a result of the large snow accumulation earlier in the year. The DC route (or Muir route) is changing fast and we currently have a guide doing route work as part of a joint team of guides from another guide service on Rainier. They hope to shovel sections of the route on the steeper parts of the DC ridge to make for safer climbing.
On another note, our Mt. Baker climbs have gone well with successful summits of the Easton Glacier. Conditions there are great & we hope for good weather to continue!
