The Four Day Summit Climb led by Walter Hailes and the Five Day Summit Climb led by Linden Mallory reached Ingraham Flats (11,200’) this morning before making the decision to turn the teams around due to unstable snow conditions.

The teams will descend from Camp Muir and return to Rainier BaseCamp in Ashford this afternoon.

Mt. Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar Begins

Our team met this morning for our six day Mt. Rainier program.  It was the first day of orientation for our Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir. We spent the day ensuring we had all the right equipment and could pack efficiently.  In the afternoon we grabbed our harnesses, boots, ice tools and crampons and spent time on the climbing walls at Rainier BaseCamp.
Just because we are not on the mountain doesn’t mean we can’t have fun.

Stay tuned as our team ventures on the mountain starting tomorrow!
