The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Casey Grom and Elias de Andres Martos climbed to 12,700’ this morning, but were forced to turn due to icy and firm route conditions. The team has started their descent and are en route to Camp Muir.
Congratulations to today’s team!

RMI Guides Casey Grom & Paul Rachele led their Four Day Summit Climb June 5 - 8, 2017 up to Camp Muir yesterday under beautiful blue skies. Unfortunately the weather changed last night bringing rain and snow to Mt. Rainier which prevented today’s climbs from making their summit attempt.
The teams will descend to Paradise and return to Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Great job, everyone! What a weekend and chance to experience something new with all of you. My wife asks me why I do things like this and I tell her that beyond the enjoyment of being out in the world and seeing/experiencing first hand what many never will, I always learn something from it - the experience, the people and about myself. I will remember this for a long time - thank you.
Also, I have some pictures and I’d be happy to share - if you have some good ones, I’d love to see them. My e-mail is here.
Last but not least - hat’s off to Casey, Matt, Hannah and Taylor. Summit or not, you helped us do what we could do and you got us home safe - that is what is most important.

It was a nice warm day here on our final hike to Lukla. We started early to beat the traffic and made good time, yet taking time to enjoy this peaceful and majestic place.
There were still dozens of loads headed for basecamp as always, because much of the needed supplies arrive via plane or from a few days further down hill via mules.
We ran into a few friends including one of RMI’s finest guides Mike Haugen, headed up for his second summit.
The entire team is doing well and relieved to be off of our feet for a bit. With a little luck we hope to be back in Kathmandu tomorrow morning.
Keep your fingers crossed for us.

Hello again everyone!
All is still well here in the Khumbu as the team members made our way back into Namche. It was a super busy day on the trail with climbers, trekkers, yaks, and porters all bound uphill to basecamp. We slowly made our way through the maze of traffic and enjoyed one last good view of Everest.
Along the way we ran into several old friends from my past trips and stopped to wish everyone good luck.
Tomorrow we’ll be moving out early on our final leg of the journey back to Lukla. So please keep you fingers crossed we have good weather and can make our flight back to Kathmandu the following morning.

We left Everest Base Camp today after a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The team has enjoyed the trek through the Khumbu Valley, but without a doubt, our Base Camp set up had the nicest dining room, cleanest bathroom, and most enjoyable shower we’ve experienced.
The team enjoyed a few last views of the glacier and surrounding mountains as we retraced our way back down valley, pausing occasionally to allow the Yak trains to pass with their important cargo that will help the Mt. Everest Expeditions succeed.
We hiked for seven hours today and descended more than 3,000’ back to Pheriche. Needless to say the team is feeling good and enjoying the thicker air.
