I'm glad you made the summit of Mount Rainier. Although you were using sherpas to help out with gear and food, and you did not supply a traditional EastKing summit pose, your accomplishment is still well deserved after many months (and years) of training. You and your crew should be very happy, especially for having such great weather on such an unpredictable mountain.

Re: Congratulations!!!

It was a great trip with a great caring group of people. Honestly though I actually like that pose on Rainier. I was so caught up with emotion and I think the picture really reflects that. I thought it was interesting comparing my avatar pic I have now to my Adams avatar pic. The strange thing was on Adams I had a picture of Rainier in the background (to show where I was going to) and on Rainier I had a picture of Adams (where I came from). Both mountains I had the greatest of weather I give great thanks to that.

Nice TR

What a difference a week makes. My group was turned back by severe weather on the Emmons Glacier route on Monday July 13, 2009. Congrats to you.
