Ascent Trip Report

Paul, Yafis and I summitted (normal route) 2 days after we did Rainier in shitty conditions. It was hailing and storming while we went up the summit ridge and the visibility on the summit was about 10 ft. I lost the soles on my (old) hiking boots which made the descent (socks/barefoot) on snow and rock very painful.
