Mt. Rainier: Emmons Seminar Turned back due to Conditions

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons August 10 - 15, 2019 led by RMI Guide JT Schmitt made their summit attempt today after several days of training on and off the mountain.  Firm and steep conditions on the route today prevented the team from reaching the summit.  The climbers enjoyed testing their climbing skills on challenging terrain.  They are now back at Camp Schurman and will continue training. Tomorrow they will break camp and return to the trailhead and back to Rainier BaseCamp.

Always smarter to stay safe. Now just wasn’t the time. Mountain will always be there.

Ya may not have reached the summit but you all had an experience many will never get a chance to have.

Not to mention the knowledge to pursue future endeavors.

Hi 5 folks.

Its still a damn solid accomplishment. Some folks cant even get off of the couch so I tip my hat to all of ya

All about the journey not the trip.

Sorry to hear this. I know they worked really hard and must be extremely disappointed.
