RMI Guide Mike King called this morning at 7:06 a.m. The Mt. Rainier Summit Climb team turned at Ingraham Flats due to difficult route conditions. The teams are planning to begin their descent from Camp Muir between 8:30 - 9:00 a.m.
Beautiful picture! Hope to go there in a few weeks and praying for good weather.

RMI Four Day Climb August 23 - 26 led by RMI Guides Mike King and Joe Hoch reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this mornnig at 6:30 am. Mike report a light breeze with a cloud near the summit as they were ascending this morning but once they reached the crater they had good visibility. The teams were crossing the crater and approaching Columbia Crest just before 7 am. After enjoying the views and signing the Summit Book, the team will begin their descent from the crater rim. They will return to Camp Muir for a short break and then continue down to Paradise later today.
Congratulations to today's climbers!

This morning RMI Guides Dave Hahn and Alex Halliday led their teams to the top of Mt. Rainier! The weather is cloudy and smoky from some wildfires up north. The team began their descent from the crater rim at 9:25 a.m.
Congrats! I heard the ladder crossing was out the day before..assuming it has been repaired now? Gaining the cleaver is not too difficult now? Im planning a climb tomorrow.

Congratulations to the Four Day Climb July 22 - 25 on reaching the summit of Mt. Rainier today! Clear skies accompanied these teams led by RMI Guides Casey Grom and Devin Wilkinson, to the summit early this morning. After enjoying some time on top they begain their descent from the crater rim aroun 6:15 am. These climbers will continue their descent to Paradise today and conclude their adventure with a celebration at Rainier BaseCamp.
Nice work team!
We fairly flew up the mountain, thanks to expert leadership by our guides. We topped out on the rim of the summit crater in darkness, crossed it in first light, and arrived at the Columbia Crest into the new day. Was the sensation delight, madness, glee, relief, or some combination, to watch our great ball of fire emerge out of the noblest peak in the ring of fire? Rainier’s perfect trapezoid shadow formed in the morning haze to the west, just north of a nearly perfect lunar orb, while summiteers snapped selfies. Casey had brought a new register book, which we had the honor to be among the first to sign (the full one he brought down to return to the NPS rangers). At “Register Rock” we huddled to inscribe our names, though really it was the mountain inscribing itself on us!

The Emmons Seminar began their summit bid this morning at 9:30. They were able to reach a height of 13,600' before weather kept them from safely continuing on to the summit. The team is working their way back to Camp Schurman where they will spend the night. Tomorrow morning they will pack up camp and start their descent back to the trailhead.

RMI Guide JM Gorum called from Camp Schurman (9,440') around 9 am, the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons June 25 - 30 team had made it safely back to camp after making their summit attempt this morning. The team encountered soft snow and poor route conditions at 12,600' which caused them to turn back. The team will spend their third and final night on the mountain tonight. Tomorrow they will pack up camp and descend to the White River Trailhead and return to Rainier BaseCamp in Ashford.
We hope they had a great week of training and climbing on Mt. Rainier!
Blue skies and sunshine were enjoyed by the Four Day Climb June 21 - 24 led by RMI Guide Joe Hoch. The team reached the summit of Mt. Rainier around 5:30 am today with good route conditions. Climbing time from Camp Muir to the summit is currently taking a little over five hours. The team is working their way back to Camp Muir and will continue their descent to Paradise later this afternoon.
Congratulations to today's climbers!

After several days of high winds and unstable snow conditions, the RMI Teams were greeted with light winds, clear skies and good route conditions. RMI Guides Pete Van Deventer, Dan Windham and their Four Day Climb teams reached the summit of Mt. Rainier shortly after 7 am today. The teams enjoyed some time in the crater getting all the photo ops before descending from the crater rim.
Congratulations to today's teams!
Go Lindsay Kibler and team congratulations!
