The content of this DVD is VERY informative, but beware: the "DVD" I received does not play in a standard DVD player that connects to a TV. It only plays on a computer DVD drive. I called the producers and they said that because of something in the process of making DVDs, it might not play on all standard players. So ... buyer beware. Otherwise the information is comprehensive, and Eric Simonson is very engaging as he tells the viewer about just what it takes to climb Rainier.

Being a novice climber and wanting to climb Mt. Rainier I found this DVD extremely helpful. It includes great route decriptions with some fun interative maps, 360 degree views etc. I feel this DVD is well worth purchasing for anyone interested in attempting Rainier ... or even if you're just into some great footage of a spectacular mountain. I look forward to the next addition .... Ascend Mt. Baker!

Ok guide. Kind of boring with not a lot of high-quality visuals. Bad sound too. All the other reviews sound like they were written by the company that makes them.

I recomment this video to those interested in mountianeering and ice/glacier climbing. Eric did an exceptional job sharing knowledge of the various routes on Mt. Rainier. The video was very informative, plus very enjoyable to watch. I highly recommend it and play to buy it for my reference material.

I am so impressed with this DVD! Being from CO I needed to gather as much info as I could about Rainier before climbing. The whole "Know Before You Go" premise is so fitting for this DVD. Nothing else in my research for the climb proved as valuable as the Ascend Mount Rainier DVD. Guide books are helpful, but the DVD literally and virtually takes you to the mountain and veteran climber/guide Eric Simonson offers the necessary info to successfully plan for the climb. Even for those who never plan to climb Rainier but wonder what its like, this is the product for YOU! The other, much anticipated volumes in the ASCEND series, like Kilimanjaro, Denali and Mt. Baker should be even more phenomenal. Hopefully there will be others!

Having family climb Mount Rainer gives me a greater understand ing and respect for the continue desire to climb this mountain over and over again. It shows just how beautiful this mountain is and makes me want climb it myself. I love the the panorama's. Have played with it on the TV and used it on the computer so I could print a map. Never seen a DV like it. Will enjoy it if you climb mountains or just love adventure.

Not really that interesting, there are no actual "climbing" shots at all, it's mostly a mish mosh of approach footage and a small amount of slogging on a glacier.
BORING!
