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!

Disappointment Cleaver

I don't care much for this route at all. It is long, meandering, and boring. It is also overrun by RMI, who thinks they have some kind of divine first-right on it. If you want a long walk punctuated by icefall danger, copious rockfall, scrambling in crampons, and crowds, well this is the route for you.

That being said, I've had three fun and memorable trip up "The DC".
