Entries from Mount Rainier
August 13, 2017
The Four Day Summit Climb August 10 - 13 was unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier today. Poor weather delayed the team from leaving Camp Muir this morning. Unable to make their alpine start, the team did opt to ascend to Ingraham Flats which will be their high point today. RMI Guide Robby Young reported that the weather had improved and they were above the clouds as the reached 12,000’. The team will return to Camp Muir and descend to Paradise today.
So sad for you all that you couldn’t make it to the summit due to weather… Anthony, You have trained so hard for this and I am so proud of you!!

Congratulations Erika and company! WOW! This is an amazing accomplishment. I know it is not the top but the journey to get where you have gotten is something to be proud of. It is always good to work with mother nature and appreciate her messages. I am glad you all listen to that, to climb another day.
To future journeys.

RMI Guides Casey Grom and JM Gorum led their teams to the Mt. Rainier summit this morning. It was clear on top with some smoky air, due to the British Columbia wildfires, on the lower flanks of the mountain. The team is making great progress on their descent back to Camp Muir.
