One of author Mike Gauthier’s primary duties as Lead Climbing Ranger for Mount Rainier National Park was advising climbing parties about what to expect on the mountain. Name any route on Rainier, and he can describe its rewards and specific challenges (he’s summited Rainier more than 170 times during all seasons and under intense conditions). Whether you choose the classic Liberty Ridge route, the drama of Success Cleaver, or the rarely attempted Mowich Face, Gauthier provides all the details you’ll need for a successful and enjoyable climb.

This edition presents the information on logistics, regulations, and permits. It includes expanded material on understanding and surmounting Rainier’s famed glaciers; tips on selecting a guide service; excellent mountaineering training sites around Rainier for those bound for the world’s highest peaks; and bonus routes on adjacent Little Tahoma, Washington’s third highest peak.
