I think you are missing the OP's point as well as most of the responses. The OP wants her husband to climb Rainier, but wants him to do it responsibly and as safely as he can, because she you know, loves him and wants him to come home. Nobody responded for him not to climb, but recommended safer ways to climb the mountain. How is that a bad thing? She is doing the research her husband apparently refuses to do, not undercut him. It is wive's jobs, especially pregnant wifes, to make sure their husbands don't do stupid things. I've been married long enough to accept that fact.
