The Disappontment Cleaver route on Rainier was what got me back into mountaineering when I was 19. We were above the cloud deck the whole time and it felt like flying in a jetliner.
Rainier is a special place to me for several personal reasons. Being above the clouds at sunrise is quite spectacular & uplifting.
I learned techs & wisdom there from a man named Dave Hahn. Was a special time because he took time to take me in.
So glad Rainier has special meaning for you!
