Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: September 7th Update

Rainier due to unstable snow conditions.  The Teams turned at 11,654’ on Disappointment Cleaver and are now safely back at Camp Muir.  They will start their descent and be back to Rainier Basecamp in the early afternoon.

Just spoke with a team member and learned of the incredible experience he had inspite of not making it to the summit. This grateful mom is thankful for the guides sound decision making! Congrats to all!

Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: September 6th Teams Reach 11,600’

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Casey Grom and Leon Davis were unable to summit Mt. Rainier this morning due to avalanche hazards, poor weather, and difficult route conditions. The teams reached 11,600’ before making the prudent decision to turn around. The teams left Camp Muir at 8:05 am to start their descent back to Paradise. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp in Ashford later today.

Thanks Casey and Leon. Was a fun attempt and we’ll surely be back!

Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: September 4th Update

The Mount Rainier summit climb teams, led by RMI Guides Eric Frank and Zeb Blais, were unable to summit this morning and turned on the Disappointment Cleaver.  Although the weather was clear, calm, and cold, the avalanche danger and new snow kept the team from continuing their summit bid.  Both teams are safely back at Camp Muir and are planning a 9:00 a.m. departure to begin their descent to Paradise.

I know you are disappointed you didn’t get to summit, but we are so proud of all of you.  Can’t wait for you to come home so we can celebrate!

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Mike Walter and Pete Van Deventer turned at Disappointment Cleaver due to fresh snow on the route with high avalanche conditions.  The teams have left Camp Muir and are en route to Paradise.

 

Sorry for the bad luck. I was at same spot in 2012 and had to turn back due to snow danger. The mountain will be there tomorrow.

Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: September 1st Teams Reach 12,600’

The Four Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides Jake Beren and Mike King turned around at Camp Comfort on Mt. Rainier this morning. While climbing, the teams encountered moderate winds and knee to thigh deep snow. We look forward to greeting the climbers in Ashford this afternoon.

Great team, poised to get to the top. Like we say in mountaneering: the mountain just didn’t want us up there, this time. We’ll try again another day. :-)
Thank you Mike, Bridget, Steve, Jake, Lance, all of the RMI guides - you guys really tried.
Cheers,
DanP

Thank you for bringing my husband Dan(and his crew) back safely :-)

Five Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: August 30th Poor Weather Prevents Team From Reaching Summit

Poor visibility, high winds and heavy precipitation forced the Five Day Summit Climb led by Lindsay Mann to stay at Camp Muir last night and they were unable to make a summit attempt.  Camp Muir received about 6 – 8 inches of new snow.  Lindsay and team will be packing up and starting their descent back to Paradise shortly.  We expect the team to arrive back at Basecamp in the early afternoon.

Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: August 29th Teams Unable to Summit Due to High Winds

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer reached the top of Cathedral Gap last night before having to turn back due to high winds of about 60 mph.  The team is safely back at Camp Muir. They will wait for a bit of a break in the weather before starting their descent. We expect the team back at Rainier Basecamp in the early afternoon.

 

 

Hey Dave Stults et Al, from what I can see seems weather prevented summit.  Sorry for that but certainly seems more than wise and sometimes Nature just overwhelms.  Take care- Love, Dad
