The permits are ordered. We’re climbing Mount St. Helens in September.
This trip is a reprise of a climb we did back in ’97, as well as another one in 2002 which I foolishly bailed on. This time The International Playboy plans to join us.
Mount Rainier may be more challenging to climb and generally more majestic, but I’ve always found St. Helens more interesting. It’s like choosing the great ethnic restaurant over the premium steakhouse.
Training? So far, mostly the treadmill, plus one practice hike up Mt. Si. If time permits I’ll do another Mt. Si practice hike in August.
