11:30 AM and Connie can barely contain herself – Four more climbers have reached the Summit and the entire rest of the team are on the Summit Plateau at 14,000 feet !! Rosanne Iverson from Steamboat Springs CO spent 2007 in treatment for breast cancer and 2008 training for Shasta; Jacque Jensen from Reno NV dedicated her climb to her dad and her friend Sherry Miller; Becky Fisch also from Reno NV climbed last year and is climbing in memory of Sherry; Linda Morton from Seattle Washington a veteran of CAO Rainier and this is her third Shasta Climb climbing in memory of many friends.
Family and friends are gathering in the hospitality suite we set up and there is joy abounding. Jeanne
