Rainier: Kautz July 3-6, 2012

Had a great trip up the Kautz Glacier on Rainier last week. Summited with a strong group of folks amongst stellar conditions on one of my favorite routes on the mountain - good times! Was honored to share a rope with Stephen again - he and I summited Denali last year together. Super fun!
