4 out of 5 stars Not a fan of the DC

Missed the Ingraham Direct by about a week. DC is a slog, but still fun to get up on top of Rainier again.

4 out of 5 stars High Avy Danger

Due to very high avalanche danger, we were only able to get as far as Ingraham Flats. Two days previously, a massive slab avalanche killed one climber and several others had to be airlifted from the mountain.

4 out of 5 stars My first glacier climb

Long slog up to Camp Muir, summitted two mornings later. The weather was PERFECT and the views from up there were AWESOME!!! Did some Crevasse rescue practice on day 2 near Camp Muir that was pretty cool as well.
