Mt. Rainier: June 25th Update

Posted by: Seth Waterfall | June 25, 2012
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 11,000'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by Seth Waterfall and the Five Day Summit climb led by Gabriel Barral were forced to turn around at 11,000’ due to storm conditions and high avalanche hazards.  There is a large cap on the mountain that was descending to almost 10,000’.  The team began their descent from Camp Muir.  We look forward to meeting them at Rainier Base Camp later this morning.



Hey Seth,
Thanks for the opportunity to summit. You made the right decision! We will see you soon for another attempt. BTW, can you e-mail that picture you took of us on your iPhone?
Thanks so much,
