The Expedition Skills Seminar – Emmons is soaking up the sun and setting up camp in Glacier Basin.  The team is doing really well and everyone is excited to be on the mountain.  There are clouds building so taking advantage of the sun is the number one priority for training this afternoon.

Mt. Rainier: May 25, 2013 - Update

Hi everyone!

The team today awoke to conditions that are not ideal to climb in. With all the new snow it just has not settled enough to allow safe climbing. So to enjoy and have a full mountain experience the team went up to Muir Peak to watch the sun rise. It’s my favorite part of climbing. The photos simply do not do it justice.

We are safe and we are happy and we are still laughing and having fun!

Mt Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar Technical Training at Muir

Posted by: JJ Justman, Dan Windham, Alex Barber, Katie Bono | June 07, 2012

Elevation: 10,080'

Today we are training at Camp Muir.  The weather is not cooperating with our training, but we are having fun teaching and using advanced techniques for our very advanced clientele. It is very winter like here at Camp Muir a lot of snow and a lot of wind.  Our last session will be navigation, and that will come in handy tomorrow getting down the Muir Snowfield.
