Improvisation . . . on the fly. A washed out climb/ski of Mt. Rainier turned into a soggy descent of Lane Peak in the Tatoosh.
The original plan had Jaime and I climbing in Tieton on Saturday, meeting Doug and Alex in the parking lot of Paradise on Saturday night, and then climbing/skiing Rainier on Sunday. Things didn't exactly go as planned. On Saturday, we got in one pitch of climbing at the Bend before getting rained on and retreating to the car.
Torrential winter rains in the lowlands pay off with a deep spring snowpack in the mountains. I've been holed up with my head down for a few months, but I recently lucked out with a fantastic weekend of spring skiing in the Sierras.
I've been messing around with video recently, so instead of the usual photos I'll offer up this amateur hack job. You gotta start somewhere.
