RMI Guides Adam Knoff & Christina Dale led their Four Day Summit Climb May 11 - 14 teams to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. Adam reported perfect conditions on the mountain and a beautiful day. The teams will enjoy some time on the summit before returning to Camp Muir and then continuing to Paradise.
Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb teams!
The guides did a fabulous job with our group. It was a fast direct ascent under perfect weather. Our group had a diversity of ages & experience levels, but we were focus & disciplined and open to Adam’s teachings.
Thanks from the Boise, Idaho crew.

The Five Day Summit Climb Team led by RMI Guides Brent Okita and Bryan Mazaika reached 11,000’ on their summit attempt of Mt. Rainier this morning before poor weather and visibility forced the team to turn at Ingraham Flats. Brent reported cold and windy temperatures with some blowing snow. The team is back at Camp Muir and will start their descent at 9 am. They will be back at Rainier Basecamp in the early afternoon.
Congratulations to today’s Team!
Climbing mountains has never entered my mind in the past as a challenging activity in which I would want to participate. However, since my son, Frank in this week’s climb, began his quest to reach the summit of each of the 50 states, I have begun to look more closely at the challenges faced by such intrepid climbers. I have found this RMI web site has some of the best information on many of the desirable mountains. I was disappointed, though, not to find any information about Britton Hill “:-)” included.
Seriously, I pray for the success of this week’s climb and the safety of all the members. May God go with you all.

The Five Day Summit Climb Teams led by RMI Guides Geoff Schellens and Mike King reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. The team reported clear skies with light winds. After enjoying some time in the crater the group will return to Camp Muir. They will spend the night at Camp Muir and descend to Paradise tomorrow.
Congratulations to today’s climbers!
The climb was amazing and the views were unlike any views I had ever seen. I owe a huge “Thank you” to our superhuman guides Geoff Schellens, Ben Markhart, and Hannah McGowan. These three were extremely knowledgeable, professional, encouraging, and super cool to hang with. RMI is very lucky to have them on their team. I will definitely use RMI in the future. Thank you all for this life changing experience!

The Five Day Summit Climb team led by RMI Guides Dave Hahn and Andy Bond reached 11,800’ feet this morning before weather and route conditions forced them to abort their summit attempt. The team has had two great days on the mountain, they are back at Camp Muir and will return to Rainier Basecamp in the early afternoon.
Congratulations to today’s team!
I was part of this climb and was honored to meet, get to know and climb with some truly amazing people.
Cannot say enough good things about the most terrific guides on the planet earth. Intelligent, focused, superb situational awareness, competent and capable. They worked incredibly hard to try to make it possible for us to summit, despite all that nature and the mountain threw at us. Hats off to them.
Survival was the very most important goal, and I always felt their every move started and ended with that as the ultimate objective. I would trust these folks any where at any time. I have learned that when you out someone under intense stress, the true qualities of their character are revealed. The RMI guides showed they were flawless gems that shone brightly under the pressure. Many thanks for going up and being able to write this from back home.

RMI Guides Brent Okita and Bryan Mazaika with their Five Day Summit Climb Teams reached the crater rim of Mt. Rainier this morning. Brent reported high winds and thus a quick turn around. The team is en route to Camp Muir where they will take a quick break and repack before continuing down to Paradise. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.
Congratulations to the first summit climb team of the 2018 season!
