Defying gravity, again

The Mount Rainier story continues. My summer of elevation gain. I can’t remember now whether the whole thing was my idea or not – it probably was – but once these things get started, they take on a life of their own.

I will say that I am greatly enjoying writing it up for visitrainier.com. I haven’t climbed anything serious in years, and the last time I stood on the summit of Rainier was in September of 1995, so it’s kind of fun to get it all in print, as it were. Early last month, I did a preparation climb on Mount Adams, and in addition to documenting it here on The Last Wilderness, I put together a more polished version for wider consumption.

To tell the truth, I’m already looking forward to the next installment.
