Ed from Omaha came out to Durango for a few days in Chicago Basin with training for Rainier in mind. Ed will start climbing Rainier on Saturday, and wanted to get a little more elevation under his belt than the 900′ that is Omaha. Colorado is perfect for gaining altitude experience. We slept at about 11,000′ and climbed two peaks over 14,000′. Ed did great on the climbs and I’m sure will do great on Rainier.
Good luck Ed!
