Elevation: 14,410'

RMI Guides Dave Hahn and Garrett Stevens led their Four Day Summit Climb teams to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams reached the crater rim around 7 am and were able to spend some time on the summit taking photos and enjoying the views.  Both teams began their descent from the crater rim and will return to Camp Muir for a short rest before continuing down the mountain.

We look forward to seeing everyone back at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb team.

Kilimanjaro: Waterfall & Team Summit!

Hey this is Seth checking in from the top of Kilimanjaro!  We had a great day.  Super nice weather, really sweet.  No wind when we left camp, just a little breeze when we hit the crater rim.  We were all walking into the crater rim when the sun came up and we have been enjoying the top for a little while now.  We are going to head down. Go back to camp and spend a few hours packing up and then we’ll be down to about 10,000 feet, back where trees grow out of the ground. All is well.  We’ll check in later today.

Mt. Kilimanjaro: Team Reaches High Camp

Posted by: Seth Waterfall | August 23, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro
Elevation: 15,000'

Another fine day on Kilimanjaro’s trails has led us to high camp.  The name of this camp is Barafu which translates to ‘ice’.  So you can tell it is not always the warmest spot.  True enough, we have been getting some ice pellets or graupel hitting the tents since we arrived.  Hopefully we’ll have the normal evening clearing and a nice climb tonight.

The team members are all in our respective tents sorting gear and relaxing before we head out.  Our crew just prepared a delicious lunch of hamburgers and macaroni salad.  Perfect for the physical effort that awaits us.

Our plan is to get up at midnight and get on the trail by 1 AM.  It should take us somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 hours to reach the top.

Wish us luck!

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.

Kilimanjaro: Waterfall & Team Enjoying the Views of Lava Tower

Posted by: Seth Waterfall | August 21, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro
Elevation: 15,000'

Well, it’s a cloudy day on the trail but the group is hanging tough.  We’re having lunch at the Lava Tower (15’000’).  That means we are setting new altitude records for just about every one.  Tonight we will camp at Barranco where some of the giant plants that are unique to Kilimanjaro are concentrated.
