Hi all-

I'm trying to set up a plan B for my Rainier plans.  Right now planning to climb w/ 2 friends with a guide service.  6/19-20 on the mountain.  If bad conditions thwart a summit I am pretty certain my 2 climbing partners will not want another attempt this trip (work/family/timing reasons).  If there's anyone/teams out there interested potentially adding in another climber last minute (I'm self sufficient but a good team member) let me know.  I have all my own gear except pickets.  Also I live on the east coast which is why a simple trip involves a lot of planning for me.  I don't want to have a "summit or bust" mentality out of pressure of not having a bigger window compared to locals.  Thanks!

You planning on the DC? Also the dates u mentioned are when you plan on going but how long do u actually have if you need to wait? Feel free to PM as well but others may want more info as well

Sorry yea would be helpful for me to include. Yes the DC route. This Plan B would be (starting from Paradise) 6/21 or 6/22, assuming 2 days to climb. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
