Our first Rainier climb of the season is doing just fine. They’ve established the camp at The Flats, no small accomplishment, and are enjoying a beautiful evening in the sun. They’re eating dinner and sipping on some hot drinks now and will hit the sack here soon before getting an early start tomorrow, with plans of summitting around sunrise. Lots of work yet to do, but they’ve set themselves up for success.
If all goes as planned we’ll see these guys tomorrow afternoon with their summit smiles on!
