Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Wait it Out at 14k Camp

May 19, 2017

Once again we fired up the stoves early in the bitter cold of morning in Genet Basin. Another large lenticular built over the summit and the West Buttress, this time accompanied by snow. We decided to pump the breaks once again and kept watching the weather as the sun began to crest the West Rib. But despite our best hopes, the weather never improved enough for us to break camp and move higher. Instead, we spent the day building snow walls to protect our camp against the the strong winds that are forecast in a couple of days.

Right now our plan is to sit tight through this next weather system and hope for a window of good weather early next week. With strong winds forecasted over the next few days, an bitter cold temps (lows of -38F and highs of -25 to -30), we aren’t even entertaining moving to high camp tomorrow. Hopefully our time to move up will come soon.

Mt. Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar Reaches the Summit!

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir May 14-19, 2017 led by RMI Guides Dave Hahn and Chase Nelson spent the week at Camp Muir.  The team spent time learning mountaineering skills, knot tying and crevasse rescue. The team experienced windy and snowy conditions for a portion of the week but were rewarded today with beautiful blue sky.  They reached the summit of Mt.

Today is the last day of the program so once they return to Camp Muir they will pack their gear and continue their descent to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Mt. Rainier: New Snow Keeps Climbers from the Summit

The Mt. Rainier Summit Climb, led by RMI Guides Ben Liken and Paul Rachele, turned just above Ingraham Flats this morning. A storm during the night dropped one to two feet of snow at Ingraham Flats, which also caused a high avalanche danger on the upper mountain.
The teams are safely off the mountain and enjoying some time here at Rainier Basecamp with their teammates.
