Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: June 13th - Update

Our Four Day Summit Climb Teams Led by RMI Guides Tyler Reid and Pete Van Deventer were turned at 12,600’ due to weather.  The team climbed into a cap and reported low visibility, cold temperatures, snow showers a couple of inches of accumulation and light to moderate winds.  The teams are en route Back to Camp Muir and will be back at Rainier Basecamp early this afternoon.

Congratulations to Today’s Teams.

Will and Tim it was an honor to have attempted the summit of Rainier with you. Pete, I would follow your lead up any mountain my friend. You kept it cool and calm under all conditions, including me tugging at your rope at 12,000ft.

Good try Ted and friends.  Weather can be the decider up on Rainier.  The Top of the Cleaver is still high, and it is the crux of the route you were on.  The mountain will always be there and I know you will go back.  Hopefully, I can go with you again!  Still a great adventure and a big accomplishment.

Thinking about you, Critter!  What stories you’ll have to tell.  You’re way higher on Rainier that I have ever been and it’s been the iconic mountain of my life.  Can’t wait to hear all about it.

It is the adventure that counts.  You will have lifelong memories of this.  There is always a next time to get to the summit.

You guys are amazing!  I know you must be disappointed that you weren’t able to make it all the way to the top, but I know you did your best under the circumstances.  You’ll just have to go again!
