“In the Maw of a Titan”

Simon (17) makes his way across Rainier’s crater towards the summit crest. For the first time in many hours he walks alone…no longer tied to his team…no longer responsible for them…the burden of being the leader lifted, if only briefly.

All his efforts since 11 pm the night before were focused on leading his team to this place. Soon his focus will shift and he will have to direct all his effort into getting his team safely back down the mountain as the sun cooks the snow, ice and rock on the route that got them here.
