Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Billy Nugent along with the Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise led by Zeb Blais reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams reported clear skies with cold temperatures on the summit.  Both teams began their descent from the crater rim around 7:40 am.  The teams will return to Camp Muir for a short break before continuing down to Paradise.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons led by Solveig Waterfall checked in this morning from Glacier Basin.  They will be descend from Glacier Basin back to the trail head and return to Rainier BaseCamp later today.

We look forward to seeing all of the teams back in Ashford later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb Teams!


Mt. Kilimanjaro: Team Ascends the Barranco Wall

Jambo from Mt. Kilimanjaro!  We are on the trail.  Last night was wonderful at Barranco camp and this morning we slept in a bit before heading up the wall.  The climbing was great and the group did very well.  We can see the upper mountain glaciers and the high camp.  We are getting close to our goal!

We are now at our Karanga Valley Camp.  The team did great on the trail into camp.  We had a great lunch here and have been relaxing this afternoon.  Everyone is psyched for the trip to high camp tomorrow morning.

Mt. Rainier: Mike Walter Recounts Their Week on the Kautz

Posted by: Mike Walter | August 21, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier

Our Kautz Expedition Skills Seminar team arrived back to RMI Basecamp in Ashford, Washington, yesterday evening. We enjoyed excellent weather during the six day program, and we took advantage of it to spend lots of time climbing and training in the mountains.
We trained on a variety of skills, including various knots and hitches, anchors, crevasse rescue, and ice climbing.
On our climb, we moved camps up the mountain and went for our summit push. The Kautz Route was in a very challenging condition, and our climbers did a great job of managing the terrain. The Kautz Ice Chute was at least eight pitches (150’ rope lengths) long, with some additional steep climbing above it. The ice presented challenging climbing at high altitude, and pushed our limits. Due to the challenging nature of the ascent and a technical descent ahead of us, we opted to turn our climb around at ~13,000’, at the top of the Wapowety Cleaver. It had taken us ten hours to get to this point and only a couple of hours of glacier travel stood between us and the summit of Mount Rainier. But, we knew we had our work cut out for us to safely descend the Ice Chute and return back to camp. Everything went smoothly and it still took us ten hours to descend.
A huge 20-hour day in the mountains is very challenging, and I’m proud of our climbers for staying strong throughout the entire journey. I hope everyone has enjoyed a shower, cold beer, and flip flops…

RMI Guide Geoff Schellens just called from the summit of Sahale Peak!  The team had a great climb and ended up above the clouds with great views of the surrounding North Cascades peaks peeking out.

The seminar team has had a fun week of training and climbing, reaching the top of Aiguille and Sahale Peak.  Tomorrow they will finish their training and descend back to the trail head before parting ways.

The Mount Rainier Summit Climbs led by Casey Grom and Lindsay Mann are on the summit!  They reported clear skies above, cloud deck at 7,000’, and light winds. Since they just crested the crater rim at 7:00 a.m., they are enjoying the views and crossing over to the true summit, Columbia Crest, before beginning their descent.
