    Product description

    One of Mike Gauthier's primary duties as Lead Climbing Ranger for Mount Rainier National Park is 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 new edition presents the latest 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.

    Mike Gauthier is Lead Climbing Ranger at Mount Rainier National Park. In 1998, he was named a Wilderness Rescue Hero by the American Red Cross. In 2004, Men's Journal named him one of the 25 Toughest Men in America. He lives in Mount Rainier National Park.

    • Extensive material on Rainier's unique weather, terrain, high altitude and glacier training opportunities, and more
