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.

Mt. Rainier: Kautz Seminar Makes Their Summit Attempt

RMI Guide Solveig Waterfall and the Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz turned this morning at 12,400ft.  After several days of training they made their summit attempt this morning.  Unfortunately, climbing conditions were difficult due to deep snow and the team decided to turn around after a strong effort.  The team is descending the Kautz Ice Chute and will check in this evening.  They will continue some training before descending from the mountain tomorrow.

I experienced Everything on Rainier which I never have before on any mountain
Team spirit was So high
Leadership was Stellar and kind and Patient and helpful, absolutely, but especially talented and tenacious…

The Route was So Terminally Beautiful it was like a volcanic eruption of Emotion, your heart racing, thoughts swimming in stimulation… a virtual BASE JUMP into Euphoria

The guides resource reservoir was vast and the way they adapted to the challenges our team encountered along the way, Masterful… instinctively executing adaptation not uncertainty to emerging obstacles in varied forms while maintaining cohesion to Team, to route, to Goal and to True Success

This alone would have been Epic to be a part of… what Elevates this trip for Myself and my teammates beyond Epic is the Catalyst into Transformation we launched with the intensive training fused together by the “real Mountain” Kautz Expedition Challenge which demands Focus on practice of lessons which opens the window into the stratosphere of what is possible for EACH ONE of us to develop into as Mountaineers of the highest caliber!

This Team… held by This Mountain during This Moment has been evolved into an Eternal Artwork as our recollections and our stories will testify…

We have Successfully Summited our Destiny and now we enjoy the opportunity our ascension has created to continue beyond…

Mt. Rainier: Bond & Five Day Summit Climb Team Reaches Summit

RMI Guide Andy Bond led the Five Day Summit Climb Team June 8-12 to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  It is a beautiful day on the mountain with winds 10-15 mph and cold temperatures.  The cloud deck below is at approximately 8,000’ so the team enjoyed great views from the summit.  After spending two nights at Camp Muir they will return to camp and re-pack gear before continuing their descent to Paradise. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s Five Day Summit Climb Team!
