Rainier 2010: #3, summit attained

Had a good trip up Rainier this weekend. We made the summit finally, although in a pea soup fog. Things cleared up a bit on the way down and we were treated to some great views of high camp. The route is straight ahead, the Ingraham Direct is in great shape - crazy for late June. Absolutely the best skiing conditions I've ever seen on the upper mountain: 5-6 inches of light, dry powder over a firm base. Too bad I had to walk all the way down, I almost cried. :-(

Get a bit of a break this coming weekend, guiding Mt. Baker with my friend Dave Heinbach.

Update: pics from Keith, a client:

Was a spectacular trip and summitting was truly an experience, unfortunately vis too poor to hike across the crater to the true summit. Great times had by all!

That climb was a blast...the 3 days flew by. Too bad the visibility was so poor. Thanks for the great guiding "Devo"!

Btw I am the guy in the middle of the pic above...Ron :)
