ryan14410 I'm not; just curious. Mainly because I've seen trip reports of summitting Adams and Hood on splits. I wasn't sure if they were similar to Rainier as far as glaciers and crevasses everywhere. Just sparkin' conversation, seeing which Cascade volcanoes can be done.

Reading this, I can't fathom why you're so determined on trying to find a splitboard route up there.

wrathfuldeity Rumored it can be done at Baker, but idk. Check at American Alpine Institute in Bellingham...I'm sure these guys know.

ryan14410 I'll take a look, Walove. Snowolf, it is a technical climb. Crevasses and ice falls are above Camp Muir. Above Camp Muir, we were roped up, crampons and ice axe (mandatory). If you were to skin above Camp Muir (which will be ice and extremely hard crusts) unroped or roped up with team members, you would be putting yourself and, more importantly, others at significant risk if you slipped. I don't see how one would be able to.

How about other Cascade volcanoes? Baker, Adams, Jefferson? Anyone splitboard those to/from the summit?

walove No detailed routes, but check out whereiskylemiller.com for inspiring trip reports and pictures from the cascades. I'm looking to ride some volcanos this spring / summer. I've been looking at baker and adams

Splitboarding Route for Mt Rainier

I've been wanting to get back to summit Rainier again. I did it in 2008 via Disappointment Cleaver, but that was with a mountaineering group. Has anyone summited Mt Rainier with a splitboard, and what route did you take for the ascent and descent? Based on my ascent in '08, I'm assuming you'd be carrying the board the entire way up, except for maybe the Muir Snowfield.
