Wow, way cool! Was there a lot of people at the summit or did the visibility cause a lot of turnarounds with the guided groups?

If there was anyone else near the summit of Rainier, we couldn't see them.

And on Thielsen, we were definitely by ourselves.

Great job and photos. I'm really glad Dylan got a new "notch" in his ice axe too! It's a classic mountaineering experience on Washington's big one.

Thanks, Cory.
Thielsen is an amazing looking peak. As you hike up, it's hard to imagine that it is only Class IV. But it's still popular, so it was very lucky for John and I to have the peak to ourselves on top.
All doubly sweet for me because I once lived in Toketee Falls, not far from there, when I was in 1st grade... back in the Pleistocene.
