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!

On a perfect weather day, the Expeditions Skills Seminar - Muir team called in from the top of Mt. Rainier!  RMI Guides Brent Okita and JJ Justman were happy to report 100% of the team reached the summit this morning!  After spending some time reveling in the views and taking photos, the team began their descent at 9:30 a.m.

This marks RMI’s last Mt. Rainier program for the 2012 season.  Congratulations to all the summit climbers this season that we have had the pleasure of guiding to the highest point in Washington state!
