Mt. Rainier: June 16th Update

The Four Day Summit Climb led by Dan Windham reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning! The team took advantage of the firm snow conditions offered by climbing in the wee morning hours and are making their way back through the clouds to sunny Camp Muir.  The team will descend to Paradise and return to Ashford later today.

We have a Five Day Summit Climb at Camp Muir, an Expedition Skills Seminar – Emmons beginning their time on the mountain.

Congratulations for all the team but specially to my brother Marcoos, I am so proud of him.I love you.

Mt. Rainier: July 1st Summit!

The Mt. Rainier Four Day Summit Climbs led by Dan Windham and Shaun Sears reached the summit this morning in bluebird conditions.  The cloud layer was at 9,000’ and the summit temperature was 25 degrees with light winds.  What a spectacular day on the upper mountain!

Mt. Rainier: June 16th Update

RMI Guides Win Whittaker and Dan Windham led the Four Day Summit Climb teams to 13,500’ this morning before deciding to turn around due to deteriorating weather conditions and increased winds.  The teams checked in from Ingraham Flats around 7:30 a.m. on their descent as the rain continued to fall.  They returned to Camp Muir to repack and hopefully dry out a bit.  At 10:00 a.m. they began their descent from Camp Muir to Paradise.

We look forward to seeing the groups at Rainier BaseCamp in a few hours.

A message from Miami- To my husband Joe- I love you and wish you a Happy Fathers Day! - My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Happy Day and Weather to you all. Be safe. Evelyn

Mt Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar Technical Training at Muir

Today we are training at Camp Muir.  The weather is not cooperating with our training, but we are having fun teaching and using advanced techniques for our very advanced clientele. It is very winter like here at Camp Muir a lot of snow and a lot of wind.  Our last session will be navigation, and that will come in handy tomorrow getting down the Muir Snowfield.

JJ, Dan & the Expedition Team

Guys had a great time, so much so I’m booking for Mexico.  I want to make sure JJ brings the fat finger ascender just for me…

We had a fantastic time learning mountaineering skills and hanging out in the hut at Camp Muir.  What a great group of clients and guides!  Thanks to JJ, Dan, Tim, Katey, and Alex for teaching us so much.  You took a newbie and got me well started on a great obsess,er,uh, hobby!  Thanks to Nick for suggesting the trip, and every body for keeping it fun.  I hope Zeek’s goose grows her feathers back in time for the next trip!
