Lane Peak: The Zipper

Made our way to the Zipper Route on Lane Peak last Friday. Looked steep from the parking area but was actually not bad at all (even for a baby like myself.) We finished up about thirty minutes after the gate to exit the park closed, but luckily the Longmire Hotel was able to let us out. I'm a bit tired of butt pictures of people climbing and I'm not fast enough or good enough to be in front, so here's a picture from the back side of the route instead which I thought was even prettier (even with my back to Rainier while taking the photo.)

Looking down the southeast face of Lane Peak. Mount Rainier National Park.
