Denali: Walter & Team have landed at Base Camp!

The weather cleared up just long enough for K2 Aviation to fly our team to Base Camp in two de Haviland Otter airplanes. The window didn’t last long and soon it socked in and began to lightly snow. We set up camp and lounged around for the rest of the afternoon. Tomorrow the plan is to pack up and move camp to the base of Ski Hill.

Cheers,
RMI Guide Mike Walter & Team

That is one Helluva “Ski Hill” . My wife JoAnn and I overnighted in Talkeetna with K2 Aviation and took a flight up to Denali over the dramatically crevassed glaciers in 1993. JoAnn then went back as a Cruise ship excursion in 2000 with her three sisters. Looking up is as close to climbing in Ice and snow as I want to be, although I summitted Mt Whitney in 1986 on Father’s Day ant took a photo with a banner I had made saying “Happy Fathers Day” to give to my father. I piloted a Cessna 172 from Torrence, CA with two other “Climbers” for that “Attempt”. We had tried in May, a month before, but were chased off the mountain after one night in a tent by a major snowstorm. Hopefully you get good weather so you can have views up there. We all look forward to more from you.

Go for it and be safe.

Denali: Walter & Team Partake in a Trial Run

The weather in Alaska is still unsettled, and our team remains on standby for clearing skies and a chance to fly into the Alaska Range. The weather improved for a bit this morning and we packed up the planes, two de Havilland Otters, donned our climbing clothes and boots, and loaded up the planes. But before we even got going, we received word that the weather shut down and snow had returned to Base Camp.
So now we are back to the Talkeetna hang as we wait for conditions to improve. We are all eager to start this expedition, but we realize that patience is imperative, as the weather is out of our control. This patience with the weather will be important to maintain throughout this entire trip; I’ll bet we see more of it over the next few weeks.
I’ll keep you posted if we get to fly this afternoon and, if not, then we’ll play the game again tomorrow.

Mike Walter & Team Kick Off the RMI Denali Season!

We are kicking off RMI’s 2018 Denali climbing season. Our team met in Anchorage on Monday afternoon and traveled north to the small town of Talkeetna. Yesterday was a busy day of packing gear and preparing for our expedition, including a trip to the National Park Service to register our group and have a pre-trip orientation.
With our bags packed and weighed for loading onto the glacier planes, we’re all set for our adventure. Currently there is some stormy weather that is not allowing airplanes to access the Alaska Range, so we’re in a holding pattern until we get a clearing. We will keep you up to speed with the team’s status.

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.

Mt. Rainier: Five Day Climb Reaches 11,000’

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 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!
