The Mt. Baker Easton Glacier crew for July 26 - 29 reached the summit this morning led by RMI Guides Nikki Champion and Alan Davis. The team gathered at the trail head on Monday and spent the last few days on the mountain learning glacier travel skills. Today they put their training to work and were rewarded with 100% of the team reaching the top. They will spend tonight back at camp and walk out to the trail head tomorrow, concluding their program.
Nice work team!

The Four Day Climb July 20 - 23 reached the 14,410' summit of Mt. Rainier led by RMI Guides Christina Dale and Nikki Champion. Blue skies but chilly temps and winds around 20 mph accompanied them on their climb. After enjoying the views from the summit of Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens and the Cascade range, the teams began their descent from the crater rim around 6:45 am. Once they reach Camp Muir they will repack and continue their descent to Paradise (5,400').
Nice work climbers and congratulations!
Fantastic climb and amazing guides! So happy to be a part of this journey.

The Five Day Climb June 3 - 7, 2021 is completing their climb today. The teams did training at Paradise on Friday with instruction on cramponing, rope travel and ice axe arrest. On Saturday they made the ascent from Paradise to Camp Muir. Yesterday, they enjoyed some additional time walking in crampons and working as a rope team by walking to Ingraham Flats at 11,200'. This allowed them to see abit of the route in the day light hours. They planned their summit attempt for today but unfortuaty the team was unable to make a summit attempt due to high winds. According to the Camp Muir Telemetry wind averages were 34 - 53 mph with gusts up to 68 mph.
The teams will descend from Camp Muir to Paradise and make the drive back to Ashford. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

After getting delayed by the rain we were able to make a dry push to Camp Muir yesterday. The stars looked to be aligning for a great summit day. We left the ridge at Camp Muir looking back at the lunar eclipse, psyched to be walking on the Cowlitz Glacier on a warm windless night. The team worked their way up the route feeling the altitide but also feeling determined to reach the top of Mt. Rainier. At 13,000' however, the mountain spoke to us telling us today, in fact, was not our day. Snow instability prevented us from climbing higher. We did not get the perfect day we were hoping for but we still got a gorgeous morning with beautiful views.

Pepper may man! Hate to see you didn’t summit on this one, but safety is why RMI is the best. Pepper, if you ever guide on anything in Europe, please let me know with lead time for training. I would love to rope up with you again.
