This is the one you have been waiting for.  For those completists whose compulsion to summit every peak on a list keeps them awake at night, join us on a scramble (without supplemental oxygen) to the lowest of the Rainier 100.  Brush will not be optional as we head to a summit that likely has less prominence than your local sledding hill.
