The Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir September 9 - 13 led by RMI Guides Jake Beren and Mike Walter continue their training at Camp Muir.  The teams ascended on Monday from Paradise to Camp Muir.  They have been working on their mountaineering skills including cramponing, rope travel, running belays and ice axe arrest.  The teams have been enjoying beautiful weather and spending time on the mountain.  They plan to make their summit attempt this evening.

We wish them luck!

Jake and Mike—
Watch out for that Lyle character! He’s a handful. Beware the deceptively charming southern accent and for God’s sake, only keep potable water in your Nalgene!
Adventure on, Dan! Your summit awaits. True challenge begins just when you’re most miserable and your comfort zone is far behind.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares drop off like autumn leaves.” - John Muir

—Megan and Chris, Dan’s AZ Guides
