Crevasse Rescue / Summit Attempt

An amazing (two-part) weekend on Mount Rainier (14,411 ft).

Crevasse Rescue - Long 13 hour day up on the Nisqually Glacier practicing crevasse rescue techniques. Unbelievably cool experience.

Mount Rainier Summit Attempt - After the exhausting crevasse seminar, six good friends and I attempted to summit Mount Rainier. Long haul up to Camp Muir, three hours of sleep, late start and fatigue from crevasse rescue stopped us at 12,600 ft. Our decision to turn around 1,800 ft shy of the summit was easy. We were all exhausted.
