Hat Trick: Summit via the Emmons

On a roll lately: I successfully summited Rainier via the Emmons-Winthrop route Thursday morning. Guide Eric S. and I joined Seth and Kira Wednesday afternoon for the summit portion of an 8-day mountaineering school. The route was a tad more exciting than usual, involving a lengthy traverse through a majestic ice fall before taking an exposed line directly up the upper Winthrop to the summit. But the weather was great and the climbers were up to the task!
