Mt. Rainier via the Kautz route


Cramer, Avilash
Cain, David

Dates of Trip: 

July 2, 2018 to July 4, 2018

I received a Collier Adventure Grant to climb the Kautz Route, a WI2/3 ice route on Mt. Rainier, the iconic 14,400' glaciated peak in Washington state. Along with David Cain, I climbed the route in about 35 hours car-to-car on July 2-3 2018. My write up of the climb was picked up by Rock and Ice magazine, and can be seen here:
