Mount Shuksan: Sulphide Glacier Team Summit!

Posted by: Solveig Waterfall, Leon Davis | September 01, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *North Cascades
Elevation: 9,127'

RMI Guides Solveig Waterfall, Leon Davis and team reached the Mount Shuksan summit!  The summit was a nice reward after weathering a storm that dumped 4” of rain on them at the beginning of their climb.  Today, no precipitation as they made their way to the top.  The team is currently on the descent back to camp and will hike the rest of the way out tomorrow morning.

Congratulations!

Seth Waterfall & Team Meet, Greet, and Prepare for Kilimanjaro

Jambo!  Our trip has begun.  The group has been filtering in over the last couple of days. Today at breakfast was the first time we were all together as a team.  We spent the day going over info about the trip, in general, and the mountain, specifically, and then I had a look at everyone’s gear.
Everything is looking great and we are set for an early departure tomorrow.  Kilimanjaro came out of the clouds right at sunset and I was able to snap a pick from the top of the water tower here at the hotel.

I’ll check in from Camp 1 tomorrow.

Summit!  The Mount Rainier Summit Climb, led by Adam Knoff and Pete Van Deventer, reached the top this morning and began their descent just before 8:00 a.m.  There were some gusty winds and clear skies. We just received an update from Adam Knoff that the team is leaving Ingraham Flats and will be back to Camp Muir in about an hour.

RMI Guide Alex Barber Begins His Personal Climb of Manaslu

Posted by: Alex Barber | August 31, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Guide News

Yesterday morning I flew into Kathmandu. It was my first daytime flight into this wondrous city.  It was beautifully clear weather, and seeing the Himalaya from the air provided an awesome perspective—with Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and many other peaks visible on the horizon. This is my third 8000-meter expedition, with previous expeditions to Cho Oyu and Shishapangma. My goal for this expedition is to climb Manaslu (8156m)- solo and without bottled oxygen.

Today I had a relaxing afternoon catching up with my Nepalese friends on the outskirts of Kathmandu valley. Drinking Nepali Raksi (moonshine) and Chhaang (rice beer) along with some quite tasty finger foods - with no ill effects this morning - hopefully I’m working up some immunity to Nepalese microorganisms.  However, the heat and humidity of Kathmandu have me daydreaming of Manaslu’s glacial base camp. I’m excited to be back in Nepal!

The next two days I will busy myself with buying supplies and packing for the trek in. I plan to depart on the 2nd of September for Arughat, a small village in central Nepal. From Arughat it is an eight-day trek into Manaslu base camp. This time of year is hot, humid, and wet; I am packing my umbrella as the trek starts in the lowland rainforest.
