Mt. Rainier: King & Emmons Seminar Team Make Summit Attempt

RMI Guides Mike King, Jenny Konway, Jessie Poquerusse and Ben Ammon are leading the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons June 11 - 16, 2017.  The team met on Sunday and spent the day discussing logistics of the trip including an equipment check and some technical training.  Their second day was spent on the slopes above Paradise practicing rope travel, ice axe arrest and cramponing techniques.  On Tuesday morning they loaded up in the shuttle and drove to the White River Campground where they met the trail head and started their climb.  Yesterday they moved to Camp Schurman at 9,440’ and have continued their training.  This morning they made their summit attempt but due to low visibility and tough walking the team made the tough decision to turn around 11,400’.  They have returned to Camp Schurman where they will do some additional training.  They will spend their last night on the mountain tonight and start their descent tomorrow.  We look forward to seeing them back at Rainier BaseCamp tomorrow afternoon.
