This time Eva wanted to summit.
We flew in with friend Pontus from Stockholm and spent time in Seattle, visiting the Boeing factory in Everret. Parked in Paradise and hiked to Camp Muir first day. Next day to the Ingraham Flats where we waited for two long days before we managed to summit the fifth day. This was my 2nd climb of Rainier but the first for wife Eva and friend Pontus. After descending we brook camp, hike out and drove to Seattle for a morning flight. We arrived in Seattle at 2 AM and found a hotel with an opening at 3 AM. Up at five and pack for flying to SLC and aiming at Borah Peak of Idaho. Eva's 45th state highpoint and the only one where she needed two attempts.
