Mt. Rainier: Five Day Climb Teams Unable to Reach Summit

The Five Day Climb June 3 - 7, 2021 is completing their climb today.  The teams did training at Paradise on Friday with instruction on cramponing, rope travel and ice axe arrest.  On Saturday they made the ascent from Paradise to Camp Muir.  Yesterday, they enjoyed some additional time walking in crampons and working as a rope team by walking to Ingraham Flats at 11,200'.  This allowed them to see abit of the route in the day light hours.  They planned their summit attempt for today but unfortuaty the team was unable to make a summit attempt due to high winds.  According to the Camp Muir Telemetry wind averages were 34 - 53 mph with gusts up to 68 mph.

The teams will descend from Camp Muir to Paradise and make the drive back to Ashford. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Mt. Rainier: Five Day Climb Teams Reach Summit

RMI Teams reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning!  The Five Day Climb, May 29 - 2 June, made their summit attempt this morning led by RMI Guides Jenny Konway and Taylor Bickford.  The teams were walking into the crater rim around 7:15 am.  Taylor reported an exceptional day on the mountain with very little wind, good route conditions and warm temperatures.  The teams enjoyed some time on the summit before starting their descent.  They will return to Camp Muir for their second and final night on the mountain.
