Great picture of Mt Everest

Need beginner advice -Shasta vs Rainier.

Hello All,

Please help me settle a debate with my camping/backpacker buddy of mine.

We're looking to start mountaineering. Neither of us had done anything like this before. We've done a dozen or so three to four day backpacker trip as well as some canoeing, here in Texas, Arkansas, and OK. But never attemped a mountaineering trip. We're both in resonable shape.

Ueli Steck is coming to Belgium

Not to climb - obviously, but he'll be giving a presentation about his solo ascents. If you should happen to be in Brussels on 01.07.2010 at 20H00, you could go and watch him. I've got my ticket delivered to me yesterday and at only € 10 I think it's pretty cheap.
