  • Full-color aerial photographs of the routes

  • Overview of Mount Rainier National Park
  • Avalanche safety, weather, and health information
  • Capsule histories of ascents, accidents, and rescues along with stories of some of the most interesting characters from the mountain's history
Mike Gauthier is Chief of Staff for Yosemite National Park. He has summited Mount Rainier more than 180 times via more than 30 different routes and variations in all seasons and manner of conditions.
