Microsoft manager tops Mount Rainier on second try

It took two tries this summer, but Sarov Chandran, a manager in Microsoft’s IT group, made it to the top of Mount Rainier on July 18 via the Emmons Glacier.

Chandran tried a month before via Disappointment Cleaver, which lived up to its name.

“It has been my ‘dream come true’ moment since I came to this country and set my eyes on this beautiful mountain,” he said via email. “The experience gave me a who new perspective on life and nature. It also helped me gain new respect for the people that has reached greater heights like Denali and Everest!”
