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!
