Pinnacle Peak

I just returned from a quick over-night snow hike with my friends Alex Hacker, Dan Hacker, and Alex Powell. We left with our ice axes, cramp-ons, warm clothes and even some gerbil food in Powell's food stash. Friday was cloudy and cold. We set up camp (some people even began digging a snow cave...the snow was too frozen) and then climbed to the top of Pinnacle Peak.

I thought our tent was going to blow away during the night with the amount of wind waking me often. Saturday was beautiful. After breakfast we practiced rope work for our July summit of Mt. Rainier.

With shirts off and packs on we headed back to the car so we could get our steak fries at Red Robin!
