Ascent Trip Report

With Jason Edwards of RMI. First night at Camp Muir. Second night on Ingraham Glacier. Went up in a big cloud -- 2 other parties followed us up, and I don't think anyone would have made it without Jason. Made the crater rim and went around to the left to Columbia Crest -- the summit photos show a tiny summit cairn and a few wands -- people said how do we know you didn't just go out to the back yard? But we made it. I felt good about my conditioning, but not perfect.
