Dave and I climb the Grand. Easier (but more technical) than Rainier. Up then down then up again, again.Optimistically, we thought we could climb the Grand (13,700', II 5.4 by the easiest route) in two days and then maybe climb Gannett Peak, the highest peak in Wyoming, or some other worthy objective. As it turns out, the Grand was more than enough for the whole week. The thunderstorm helped!
