[pct-l] 77 Y/O on Mt. Rainier

[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]
 Lady's name is Bronka Sundstrom. She lives just outside park westside
entrance. She started shortly after 9:00a.m. Saturday and made it to Camp
Muir in 3 hours and 15 minutes ( My time in 2000 Mid- May was my best at 2
hours and 50 minutes). She took a small break at Muir , then pushed to summit
in another 4 hours and 40 minutes. ( Guides and her stayed one hour on top.
She did a total round trip in 19 hours. Bronka lives witrh her 85 y/o
husband. roughly 12,000 climbers a year try Rainier and about make it to
summit. Of 5,000 to 6,000 summit climbers, fewer than 50 do it in a single
day.   I HATE BRONKA SUNDROM and am Jealous as Heck that at age 77 she could
clean my clock. What have they been putting in that " Gerital" anyway???? (
Just kidding, Hats off to Bonka and great job!!)
