Mt. Rainier: June 13th Update

Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 12,700'

Our Four Day Summit Climb Teams led by JJ Justman and Billy Nugent turned today at the top of Disappointment Cleaver due to difficult conditions.  The weather continues to be winter like on the upper mountain and is slowly transitioning into summer. High winds and firm conditions have thwarted attempts and guides are working hard to establish a safe route.

We are expecting Mt. Rainier to release its winter hold on the upper mountain any day now.



Great job, Mark and team! You guys are unstoppable!
