Mt. Rainier- Dissapointment Clever 8/8-8/10
Once again, the PNW has shown us all four seasons in the past 2 days. Walking up the Muir snow field with 50m of viability, wet snow and high winds, we were a bit unsure of our summit chances.
Our group was strong, very determined and showed an awesome willingness to overcome the elements. Our move to high camp was beautiful but wind on the upper mountain was still blowing very strong.
The next morning we woke to a stary sky, wonderful silhouette of Little Tahoma and a calm upper-mountain. We reached the summit crater just as the sun was rising and celebrated together. It was an absolutely incredible morning that will not be soon forgotten!
