We had a 2 day window to climb Rainier and by the time we got near the top the storm was upon us. It was kind of scary to think that we would get trapped on the summit or not be able to find our way down. Thankfully everything worked out okay.
Love all your incredible photos.
We really lucked out here. This photo is very close to the summit of Mount Rainier. We actually summited just before midnight, and were forced to bivy about a few hundred feet below Liberty Cap. But, the storm completely engulfed us on our return down the east side of the mountain. I feel the it was pure luck we didn't become statistic.
I did produce a TR named "Late Season Fools on Liberty Ridge."
Thank you for checking out the photo and your vote, Ray.
