ends well

Nice setting sun picture. Sounds like a very good decision to turn around, and sounds like your team was well prepped on self-arresting when someone else fell.

Re: ends well

I was happy that everything turned out all right. I'd like to spend more time teaching self-arrest and rescue techniques but we are rather limited with the time structure of these organized trips. Thanks for the comment!

Close one!

Sounds like you had yourself a bit of an epic. Glade no one got seriously hurt. I hope you have better luck the next time. Bakers been a bit of a pain this spring, she hasn't let me up once!

Re: Close one!

It turned out to be a little more exciting than I had hoped for. Sorry to hear that the mountain turned you around as well. Try try again, right?

Re: Wear a Lid !!!!!

You're completely right. I've seen the results of not wearing a helmet on Rainier. I hope that's the last time I have to use my WFR training. Thanks for the nice words. Cheers!
