Congrats! I summited Mount Saint Helens on the 18th as well and the wind at crater rim was insane! Had to have been over 25mph. Thank goodness for goggles.

A great job by all teams!

Mt. Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar Crevasse Rescue and Ice Climbing Bonanza

Today’s mixed bag of weather didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm to train in and around the crevasses near Camp Muir. If anything, we were all smug in the knowledge that we took advantage of fantastic weather when we could to summit and would deal with less than ideal weather for our training.
Even the blisters and sore feet of the climb seemed to go away with our great night of sleep.
I was impressed with how the group really learned the skills to effect a rescue of a partner from a crevasse, then jumped at the chance to get back in the hole to ice climb out. Most even got in seconds on the ice climbs.
Our evening talk in the bunkhouse covered everything from altitude illness, mountain medicine, expedition life, Denali and Everest to things better left unmentioned here. I apologize in advance to all of you if your partners on this seminar come home with ambitions to climb more and bigger mountains in the future.
Tomorrow, sadly, is our last day. However, a morning of training will be followed by excitement to get down off the mountain, have a beer and burger and get back to our loved ones and the comforts of home.
It’s been a great week and we hope to be able to climb together again sometime soon.
Au revoir from Camp Muir.

RMI Guide Brent Okita
