Climbing is dangerous! Every year many climbers are broken, maimed, and killed. Don't be so foolish as to trust your life to what you see here. I'm not a guide and neither is this web site. If you don't know what you are doing or where you are going, please take a course or hire a guide!

The Search for Water Ice on Mount Rainier

November 24, 2000

Jens and I went looking for water ice hanging off the western cliffs below the Muir Snowfield. We found lots of ice, but didn't climb any. We did get our first ski turns of the season, though. Check back soon for pictures and a full trip report...

The elusive quarry (and my ever-present finger, of course). It was bigger than it looks in this picture
