Mt. Rainier: August 30th Poor Weather Prevents Team From Reaching Summit

Posted by: Lindsay Mann | August 30, 2015
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 10,080'

Poor visibility, high winds and heavy precipitation forced the Five Day Summit Climb led by Lindsay Mann to stay at Camp Muir last night and they were unable to make a summit attempt.  Camp Muir received about 6 – 8 inches of new snow.  Lindsay and team will be packing up and starting their descent back to Paradise shortly.  We expect the team to arrive back at Basecamp in the early afternoon.

Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 11,000'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer reached the top of Cathedral Gap last night before having to turn back due to high winds of about 60 mph.  The team is safely back at Camp Muir. They will wait for a bit of a break in the weather before starting their descent. We expect the team back at Rainier Basecamp in the early afternoon.
