Hi this is RMI Guide Seth Waterfall checking in from Camp Muir on Day 5 of our Expedition Skills Seminar - Winter.  We’ve been having some serious winter weather up here.  Although it has kept us off of the upper mountain, we have been able to do a lot of training out in the elements.  Yesterday the storms kept us inside for a bit but we were able to venture outside to practice our crevasse rescue systems.  This morning we had a great session on a fixed-line course and also practiced rappelling.  This afternoon we have more activities planned and the we’ll settle in for our last night at Camp Muir.

I’m assuming the weather conditions prevented you all from attempting the summit?  I know akbar was really looking forward to it.

That looks absolutely amazing and crazy.  I hope to be able to be there in 2013.  I summited Rainier on July 1 last year.
