Hi this is Seth.  Today we did a dry run for our climb by heading up to Ingraham Flats this morning.  The wind was blowing us around a bit but at least the sun was still out.  After spending an hour at ‘The Flats’ we dropped down onto the Cowlitz Glacier for a round of crevasse rescue training.  The crevasse that we picked out was great and everyone was brave enough to go down in it.  Now we’re relaxing for the evening.  Tonight we climb!
