Area resident Gus Franchi (in white helmut) pictured here high atop Mt. Rainer. The party climbed to an altitude
of 11, 000 feet before their ascent was cut short of the summit due to dangerous conditions.
Gus is a member of Boy Scout Troop 8 in Athol and shopped at TrailHead for gear before his climb.
Job well done to Gus and his climbing party!
