Congratulations to today's climbers!
Thanks everyone for a great climb yesterday! Great meeting everyone and good luck with the next adventure.
Special thanks to Jess as Cam and I probably wouldn’t have made it without you! Jess, since we didn’t have much time for pictures, would you happen to have any pictures of our climb or previous Rainer climbs? If so, could u send them to my email or post some where on the Rmi blog? Thanks again for everything!
