RMI Guides Brent Okita and J.J. Justman are leading the Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir this week.  The team hiked to Camp Muir on Monday and has spent several days training at the 10,060’ camp.  Today the team is receiving instruction on crevasse rescue techniques.  The weather has been clear with warm temperatures.  We hope the weather holds for their summit attempt tonight.

Good luck to the team!
