Mile 2500 - Mount Rainier (in a day!), Emmons Glacier Route
Completing Rainier in a single day has always been a goal of mine.... To make it happen with one of my best friends made it even more special. The Emmons Glacier route is by no means the shortest route, but we were set on it once we found out the road to the trailhead was finally opened.
Flipping a coin on our weather window, we were rewarded with a show on the mountain. The weather ended up being perfect with swirling clouds for sunrise. We also met some great people who even stashed beers for us in the snow (thanks dudes!). The day couldn't have been more ideal minus those pesky crevasses and adding on an extra ~2000' of vert to 'ski more laps'🙄.
