Photos from the Climb

a) - Josh delicately tight-ropes a section along the knife edge of a burly crevasse just after sunrise.
b) - Our second rope team in the distace carefully navigates a crevasse-split section of glacier. Mt Adams looms on the horizon.
c) - Kjel continues the trek toward the summit just before sunrise (approx 12, 300ft).
d) - Paul and Jeremy squeeze out a smile amidst high winds on the whipping cold summit of Mt. Rainier at 8:48am.
