We had a fantastic Mt. Rainier climb last week with every team member making it to the summit!  We climbed the Disappointment Cleaver route from a high camp at Ingraham Flats.  During our ascent we had excellent snow conditions, good weather, and our climbing teams implemented their newly learned climbing skills with precision and finesse.  Following are a few photos from the trip.
