USNPS ranger Richard Rossiter relaxes in the cold air at Camp Muir (10,000 feet) after his 55th ascent of Mount Rainier. Photo by Joyce Rossiter, 1984. The next day Joyce and I tandem soloed the Central Mowich Face route and descended the Tahoma Glacier. My supervisor wanted to have us arrested for making an unauthorized solo ascent of Mount Rainier, which is a Federal Offense.    Gallery Intro
