Patrick Connor (AtBF Club Member) - 2nd Time up Ranier
 So brother Patrick was on Rainier last week for the second year in a row. He said it was a much tougher route this year, as it was a two-day trek vs. three last year. Monster second day as you go from Muir Camp at 10k to the summit and then all the way down to the lodge, a 9000' descent. It was a 16-hour day. I just got off the phone with him. His quads are still sore some five days later. ~ Mike OC

Wow, that was nice of Kay to post all that. Please tell her much appreciated and that the AtBF gang has played a large role in my late in life enthusiasm for higher altitudes. Pat Connor
