Rainier 2013

A self-guided, technical trip in early June with camps at Camp Muir (10,188′) and Ingraham Flats (11,1138′). I was recovering from a back injury and stayed at the high camp while Ian, Marty and Andy successfully summited. For them, summit day started at 1 AM. I hung out on the glacier with the professional support crew at Alpine Ascents. We shambled into the Paradise Inn at the trailhead at 6 PM, ready for a hot meal and bed.
