Mt. Rainier: August 28th Update
The Four Day Summit climb August 25 - 28 led by RMI Guide Jake Beren and the Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise led by Pete Van Deventer were unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier today due to high winds. The teams waited at Camp Muir for a break in the weather and eventually started out on their summit attempt. Consistent high winds with gusts up to 60 mph turned the teams around at Cathedral Gap. The teams will start their descent from Camp Muir at approximately 8:30 am. The Expeditions Skills Seminar will continue their training at Rainier BaseCamp before concluding their week long adventure later this afternoon.
We look forward to seeing the teams at BaseCamp this afternoon.
