Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: May 23rd Update

The Four Day Summit Climb team led by RMI Guide Brent Okita was unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. Low visibility and windy conditions prevented the team from climbing above 13,200 ft. The team will descend back to Camp Muir before continuing on to Ashford this afternoon.

Sorry to hear of the news, but thankful you guys will be coming home safely. Sure wish the weather would have opened up for your summit push. Great job getting that far in that weather.

Expedition Skills Seminar - Winter

Mt. Rainier: Winter Seminar Enjoying Post Storm Sun

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Winter led by RMI Guides Brent Okita and Seth Waterfall spent yesterday training on the lower slopes of Mt. Rainier. The team experienced stormy conditions with 5 - 6 inches of new snow overnight and some mild wind.

Today, the team is breaking camp and making their way uphill towards Camp Muir where they will continue their technical training. While breaking camp, the team enjoyed bluebird skies and beautiful mountain views.

I hope you guys are well and wish you the best of luck.  I hope to climb this mountain sometime in the next year or so and I am training for it right now.

Enjoy the climb. I was there on the same type climb with Brent and Elias in April of 2012. Lots to learn. Have fun. I am headed to the Alaska Expedition Skills Seminar next month with RMI. I hope to get to Denali in 2016.

Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir

Mt. Rainier: Camp Muir Seminar Summits!

Today, RMI Guides Brent Okita and JJ Justman led their teams to the summit of Mount Rainier!  With a looming forecast of a change in our glorious weather, the guides decided today was the day!  They crested the crater rim around 7:40 a.m. and spent an hour on the summit before a cloud cap started to form and they began their descent.  The team is currently on the last stretch between Ingraham Flats (11,200’) and Camp Muir (10,000’) where they will celebrate and rest for the night.  The seminar has two more days to gain additional training before they end their week on Mount Rainier.

Congratulations to the teams!!!

Jeff and the entire team congratulations on a great job.  We are sitting Ina bar in Moscow and everybody is cheering you on.  Mom and Dad
