Five Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: September 27th Summit!

The Five Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Brent Okita and JJ Justman reached the summit of Mt. Rainier early this morning.  Brent reported a beautiful day with clear skies and great climbing.  The team will spend some time on the summit enjoying the views before starting their descent. 

Congratulations to today’s team, what a great way to finish the 2015 Mt. Rainier climbing season!

I couldn’t have done it without the support of everyone and especially Caleb and Brent. True professionals in every sense. Thank you for the unforgettable experience.

Congratulations Kevin, a major accomplishment. I’m sure the view from the “top of the world was worth the climb”! Safe travels back home to you family. I hope to see you soon to hear all about it.

Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir

Mt. Rainier: Muir Seminar Wraps Up Week on the Mountain

The final Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir of the 2015 climbing season is wrapping up their final day on Mt. Rainier. Yesterday, the Seminar led by RMI Guides Casey Grom and Billy Nugent made a summit attempt. The teams reached 13,300’ before increasing winds and deteriorating weather conditions prompted their descent. Today the teams are descending from Camp Muir to wrap up their week of climbing and training. We look forward to welcoming all of the climbers at Rainier BaseCamp in Ashford this afternoon.

Sorry you did not make it to the Summit.  We hope the experience was still worth the challenge!
Good job to all the climbers!

Kilimanjaro Climb & Safari

Kilimanjaro: Dave Hahn Wraps up the Kilimanjaro Climb & Safari

Our last couple of Safari days were chock full of wildlife, natural beauty and exploring.  Tarangire National Park certainly delivered.  We saw hundreds of elephants dotting the landscape in family groups of fifteen to twenty.  We saw thousands and thousands of zebra and wildebeest.  Beautiful and exotic birds were everywhere.  We saw several great sleeping lions and we looked in every acacia tree for more big cats.  Despite the best efforts of our two dueling sharp-eyed naturalists; Driver Joseph and Climber Chris, we never did see the leopards and cheetahs although we were pretty sure they were watching us.  Something left for next safari.  None of us will soon forget this one though, and the peaceful night we spent out in Kikoti Camp overlooking Tarangire.  We watched a troupe of baboons climb a sheer rock face that final evening for no other reason than to watch the sunset from the top of the rock.  We’ll keep their example in mind -it is often worth going out of one’s way to see the wonders of this planet. 
Today we are flying back around this gigantic planet toward home.  Thanks for following along on our climb and safari.

Best Regards
RMI Guide Dave Hahn
