Nice, we made it to the top on the 26th also. Were you guys with IMG or solo?

Jordan, congrats! What a fun season to be up there! I was with Kling Mountain Guides, a small guide company out of Durango, Colorado. They are one of the few outside guide companies to receive guiding permits on Tahoma. So were you going up in the storm?

Edit: The guy in the gray helmet pulling the rope out is Josh Kling, the owner of KMG.

@Cody G we were on the other side of the mountain, we climbed a DC/Emmons variation that was pretty long (my first time up Rainier). Was awesome. We climbed from the 7/23 and topped out at around 6AM on 7/26. Saw quite a few people walking over from the Kautz side to the true summit a little after 6. Might have been you guys! We had three days of the best weather I've ever seen up there. Seriously perfect (hot) weather for a few days there
