Expedition Skills Seminar - Winter: Team Gathers at Rainier BaseCamp
RMI’s Expedition Skill Seminar - Winter is a go! And the first thing we are doing is the 1st principal of Leave No Trace…plan and prepare. Adam Knoff and I are busy with the team organizing and packing gear, practicing knots and hitches, and teaching various self rescue techniques all in the comfort of RMI BaseCamp in Ashford.
We have a decent forecast and our hope is to make a big push up to Camp Muir tomorrow. Will we summit? How high will we get in the frigid snows of Rainier? Stay tuned to find out.
One thing is for sure, we will be having fun while going through advanced training for big mountain climbing.
