This was a conditioner with basic students from the Mountaineers. After the second time up Muir, I had sworn to myself I would not go up again unless I were to summit Mount Rainier. But this time it was a needed conditioner for me to be sure I still wouldn’t get high altitude sickness at 10k+ elevation. It was also in preparation for our Rainier climb in exactly three weeks!
There were a lot more people at base camp this time compared to the previous two times. Probably because the weather was so freakin’ good.
