Mount Rainier, WA - 14,410'
Mount Rainier is a beautiful and spectacular mountain. I was fortunate to climb and summit Mount Rainier July 29th, 2009 with my good friend Adam Wiedemann. We enrolled in Rainier Mount Inc (RMI) 6 day Mountainiering Seminar. The six fun filled and action packed days took us up the Emmons Glacier approach, a more challenging approach on the opposite side from the traditional Dissapointment Cleaver (Camp Muir) approach. Ultimately 5 of the 8 of the climbers in our group would summit. Three of the team members were not as lucky as Adam and I would not reach the summit on this trip.
