Thanks again and sorry for coming out on the defensive. It certainly wasn't the plan to stop at the rim; that's just how the day worked out. The funny part is that Rainier is the only mountain I've ever climbed where I got a summit certificate as well as the only HP where I didn't tag the tippy top. Ah, the irony. Anyway, my climbing isn't anywhere near relevant enough for anyone to care about but I know I'm getting close to being a 48/50 completer so I just wanted to be completely up front about where I was.
Always fun to go back and look at debates of the past.
