I did a lot of mountain climbing in the Cascades of Washington state in 1988. Here I am on my way to a summit.
I summitted Mt. Rainier (14, 410 ft.) in June 1988 with a team. Here we are on the first day. Note in the background the rest of the team traveling roped together in groups of three.

Our camp at 11,000 feet
Approaching the summit on the second day.
Rainier is a volcano. Here I am at the rim. To reach the summit I still need to cross the crater and climb up a bit. I am totally exhausted by this time.
Finally at the summit.
