The Four Day Summit Climb led by Tyler Reid and the Five Day Summit Climb led by Zeb Blais were on top of Mt.

Elevation: 14,410'

RMI Guides Jake Beren and Ty Reid and their summit climb teams tagged the Mt. Rainier summit this morning!  The summit was enveloped by a cloud cap, which created only moderate winds and saturated (not precipitating) air.  Both teams had began their descent from the crater rim at 7:30 a.m.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!

RMI Guide Tyler Reid and the Expeditions Skills Seminar - Emmons are beginning four days on the northside of Mt. Rainier where they will gain valuable mountaineering skills and try for the summit later in the week. They will make their first camp tonight at 7,500’ on the Inter Glacier.

Mt. Rainier: July 4th Update

Posted by: Eric Frank, Tyler Reid, Seth Waterfall | July 04, 2012
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 12,600'

The Four Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides Tyler Reid and Eric Frank reached 12,600’ before turning around due to avalanche hazard.  It is a beautiful day on the mountain with light winds and clear skies.  The cold temperatures from overnight are dimenishing with the sunshine.  The team will be making their way back to Camp Muir after the guides spend some time working on the route.  RMI Guide Tyler Reid said it was a difficult decision to turn the climb on such a beautiful day, however, conditions on the mountain were not safe enough for them to continue.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons led by RMI Guide Seth Waterfall reached the summit of Mt. Rainier today!  The team enjoyed a beautiful day on the mountain.  They will return to Camp Schurman for their final night on the mountain.  They may do some additional training tomorrow morning before returning to the trail head.

Congratulations to today’s team and Happy Independence Day!
