Did my best on Rainier two weeks ago but it wasn't meant to be. Got to the top of the Cleaver and had balance issues. Didn't feel it was safe to continue so stopped 2K feet short of my goal. Disappointed but happy I still tried. Off to Hawaii in October for #46.
We did see wild horses on Boundary about 8 I think. They blocked the path on return and one looked like he was rearing up to kick at us if we tried to pass so we took detour.
That's too bad on Rainier but that certainly happens. One of the guys on top of Boundary had turned back on Rainier as well due to weather I believe. Also met someone else on top of Boundary who was highpointer named Rich from AZ. He was big into club and had climbed Whitney like 41 times and Boundary 13. His license plate on truck was 4ever49 since he attempted Denali twice without success and isn't going back.
