Mt. Rainier: Paradise Seminar Team Reaches Summit
The Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise August 8 - 13 team met last Tuesday at Rainier BaseCamp for their first day of Technical Skills training. On Wednesday, led by RMI Guides Ben Luedtke, Jackson Breen and Joey Manship they headed to Paradise and hiked to their first camp. The team spent the next several days learning and practicing glacier travel skills, crevasse rescue and expedition style climbing. Yesterday they bumped camp to 10,080' Camp Muir and with an alpine start this morning they reached the summit of Mt. Rainier. The team is safely back at Camp Muir where they will have a short break to repack and re-fuel for the remaining 4,500' down to Paradise. They will conclude their program with a celebration at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.
Congratulations to the team!
