Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir

Mt. Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar Update

This is Seth again checking in from Camp Muir.  After a blustery and cold day yesterday we have been enjoying the warm and calm conditions today.

We began our day with breakfast at 7 and by 8:30 we were heading out onto the Cowlitz Glacier.  We then found an awesome set of crevasses for practicing crevasse rescue.  Everyone was able to alternately practice arresting a fallen climber, setting up a pulley system and descending into a crevasse.  We also had a backup rope set up where we could practice belaying techniques.

After the rescue practice everyone was still feeling good so we lowered folks back into the crevasse and had them ice-climb back out.

It was a great day of training and with any luck tomorrow we’ll do the real thing and climb the mountain.  We’ll check in again in the morning.
