Mt. Shuksan: Seminar Team Reaches Summit

Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *North Cascades
Elevation: 9,127'

Another excellent day on Mount Shuksan in the North Cascades…this time we woke up before dawn and cramponed up the Sulphide Glacier to the base of the summit pyramid, where we ditched the crampons and ice axes and climbed 4th and 5th class rock for 800 vertical feet to the summit!

Our entire team reached the summit in good style. The weather was perfect so we hung out on the summit for over an hour before descending. We were back in camp around 2 p.m. for a round trip of a little over eight hours. The training over the past week really paid off and nobody struggled with the technical terrain at all. Congrats team!

We had another great day of training today here on Shuksan’s Sulphide Glacier. We spent the bulk of the day ice climbing in a crevasse and practicing crevasse rescue with mechanical advantage systems.

There was barely a cloud in the sky all day, and the forecast looks similar for tomorrow. That’s good news for us, as we’re planning to make our summit attempt tomorrow. We’ll let you know how it goes!

Mt. Kilimanjaro: Team Explores the Ngorongoro Crater

Hi this is Seth.  We are spending the day in the vast Ngorongoro Crater.  The animal viewing here is excellent and we’ve already spotted our first lion of the trip.
Everyone’s legs are almost completely recovered from summit day but its still nice to relax in the vehicles.  We’ll be staying in our same hotel tonight before making the switch to Kikoti Camp tomorrow.
That’s it for now.

Mt. Kilimanjaro: Team Explores Lake Manyara National Park

Posted by: Seth Waterfall | August 26, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro

Hello from Lake Manyara National Park.  Today most of the team headed out for some game viewing while two of our members went directly to the hotel.  One of them was feeling under the weather.
The rest of us have been on the road, looking for animals, at Lake Manyara.  It feels great to be toasty and warm after being cold on Kilimanjaro.  Most everyone has legs that are still a little tired from the climb so it’s also a treat to ride in the safari vehicle.
Tonight we’ll overnight at the beautiful Plantation Lodge and tomorrow we head to the famous Ngorongoro crater.

Mt. Shuksan: The Seminar Enjoys Beautiful Weather While Training

Posted by: Mike Walter | August 25, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *North Cascades

We had another great day of training today on Mount Shuksan. We ascended the Sulphide Glacier and then stepped onto the Upper Curtis Glacier where we spent much of the day running laps on the steep ice pitches known as Hell’s Highway.
Afterwards we practiced some 4th class rock scrambling on the ridge just west of the Sulphide Glacier.
The weather has treated us well so far, and the forecast looks favorable for the rest of out week here. Everyone is doing well and enjoying the beauty of the North Cascades.

Mt. Kilimanjaro: Team Makes Final Descent and Depart Kilimanjaro National Park

Posted by: Seth Waterfall | August 25, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Kilimanjaro

Hello from the Dik Dik Hotel!  We have made it off the mountain.  Today we awoke to clearing skies and warm temps.  After another great breakfast we were honored to give our support staff their well-deserved tips.  They have done an amazing job keeping us healthy and happy for the summit push.
After that we headed down the trail.  The group moved well over the trail.  Yesterday’s rain had left a slick surface but we didn’t have any mishaps.
Once we reached the Kilimanjaro National Park Gate the guys set out a lunch platter and then we made the drive back to the hotel.
Everyone is showering up and cleaning gear right now.  We’re meeting up for dinner later and then its off to bed.  Safari starts tomorrow.

Mt. Shuksan: Walter and Seminar Team Focus on Training

Elevation: 6,200'

Our Expedition Skills Seminar - Shuksan team is enjoying nice weather here in the North Cascades. Our camp is tucked in at 6,200’ amongst stunning alpine scenery on the flanks of the Sulphide Glacier. We have unobstructed views on Shuksan’s summit pyramid to the north, and the northern Picket Range to the south. Baker Lake winds its way south through the valley bottom, far below us.

We just returned back to camp after a morning out on the glacier practicing various climbing skills such as ice axe arrest and cramponing. This afternoon we’ll work on some technical skills starting with knots and hitches.

Everyone is doing well and enjoying the alpine air.

Cheers,
RMI Guide Mike Walter and Team
