Detailed Product Description
Seattle, 1971, 1st edition. 332 pp, b/w photos. Blue cloth hardcover with chipped dust jacket. Book has former owner's RSM on FEP and bottom page edges. Near Fine.

The standard and most popular history of Mount Rainier. It covers geology, glaciology, and climate; the discovery and early climbs before 1900; the pioneering efforts on over 35 routes, winter and summer; notable summit climbs and mountain tragedies on the steep slopes; and the guides who have led summit-seekers over the years. Summit guide and ranger in Mount Rainier National Park for many years, Dee Molenaar reached the summit of Mount Rainier fifty times via over a dozen routes, including first ascents, prior to writing this comprehensive, profusely illustrated historical record of mountaineering on the Northwest's greatest mountain. [Neate M128.] 

Molenaar has summited Rainier over fifty times by more than a dozen routes, including three firsts.

Even in the days when Native Americans were the only inhabitants of the Northwest, magnificent Mount Rainier was an object of awe and reverence the mountain that was God. The Native Americans reacted to the mountain by giving it a wide berth; the white man, however, began immediately to explore and climb its steep, glacier-clad slopes. One of the world's greatest volcanoes, Rainier is a meeting ground of dense forests, alpine meadows, and glaciers. It's also a constant lure for hikers, skiers, and mountain climbers.

This book is the first complete documentation of the significant events in the climbing history of Mount Rainier, updated through early 1979. It covers geology, glaciology and climate; the discovery and early climbs before 1900; the pioneering efforts on over 35 routes, winter and summer; notable summit climbs and mountain tragedies on the steep slopes, and the guides who have led summit-seekers over the years.

Fascinating reading for the increasing numbers who respond to the challenge of Rainier, this book is also enjoyable for all to whom Mount Rainier is a symbol of one of nature's last testing grounds for man's physical enterprise and endurance.
