  1. Rainier by Kautz or Finger

    summited via FF and descended kautz on May 2- great conditions(forgetting about wind) minimal crevasse issues both up and down with really good frozen spring snow in the finger. near the top and down to kautz was wind blasted sastrugi, everything semmingly safe. scattered stretches of ice near bottom of kautz, not too much, most of the ascent to camp hazard was wind compacted snow. turtle snowfield was refrozen corn(ski tracks everywhere). would say it's in great shape, but then again it was my first trip to the area so i don't really know. crossing the nisqually was straightforward as well. Not a soul to be seen except trudging up to muir across the way.
