Elevation: 9,127'

Waiting out a rain delay was a good decision at the start of our program.  A 6 1/2-hour hike yesterday brought us to camp in warm and dry weather.  This morning 100% of our team reached the summit of Mt. Shuksan via the southeast ridge of the summit pyramid!  After a short rest at camp, our crew climbed down through the Fisher Chimneys, back to the Lake Ann Trail and to the trailhead.

Congratulations to the Mt. Shuksan - Fisher Chimneys team!
