"Success Cleaver, the great SW rock spur to Point Success, begins at 6,500 feet at the saddle north of Pyramid Peak. In late summer it usually is an all-rock route to the 14,000-foot level (with a number of unpleasant traverses on loose scree). Most of the route is protected from stonefall by its own projection. It is not a difficult route, but it has a moderately long approach and is a long climb. There is at least one pitch of rock climbing at the upper bands. Most parties carry bivouac or sleeping gear, and make a traverse of Rainier to descent by another route." from Cascade Alpine Guide, Volume 1 by Fred Beckey
