Mt. Rainier: June 1st Update

Posted by: Pete Van Deventer | June 01, 2013
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 11,000'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer turned at 11,000’ this morning due to avalanche danger.  The team returned safely back to Camp Muir and did a bit of training before starting their descent to Paradise.  Pete reported high clouds with good visibility below to AltaVista.  Sounds like a nice, calm morning at Camp Muir.

The Five Day Westminster Summit Climb team led by RMI Guide Linden Mallory will rest and train today around Camp Muir.
