The Mt. Baker Easton Glacier crew for July 26 - 29 reached the summit this morning led by RMI Guides Nikki Champion and Alan Davis. The team gathered at the trail head on Monday and spent the last few days on the mountain learning glacier travel skills. Today they put their training to work and were rewarded with 100% of the team reaching the top. They will spend tonight back at camp and walk out to the trail head tomorrow, concluding their program.
Nice work team!

The American Lung Association Climb for Clean Air team attempted their Mt. Rainier summit bid this morning. With an overcrowded route and standstill foot traffic, which would have made continuing on unsafe due to the time of day, the guides turned at 12,500'. The team is at Camp Muir and will begin their descent around 10:00 a.m.

RMI Four Day Climb teams reached the summit of Mt. Rainier around 6 am PT today. The climb took slightly longer than it has been due to many climbers on the route this morning. RMI Guides Pete Van Deventer & Joe Hoch reported great conditions with clear skies, light breeze and nice cool temperatures. The teams were able to spend about an hour on the summit enjoying the views and taking photos. They began their descent from the crater rim shortly after 7 am. Once back at Camp Muir the teams will take a short break and repack their gear for the final 4.5 mile hike down to Paradise.
Congratulations to today's climbers!
Joe, Dan and Seth - You three were amazing guides, very compassionate and set achievable expectations. You stuck to your words and engaged with everyone and made this a memorable and successful climb. I had Fun and you made feel like i was Doing a regular training hike up Mt Si or Mailbox Peak beyond DC.
