NOTE DATE CHANGE

BEST WEATHER DAY OCT 8, 9, OR 10

TRIP WILL GO ONLY IF LITTLE OR NO RAIN THE PRIOR WEEK, AS THIS TRIP WILL LIKELY REQUIRE FORDING THE RIVER

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.
