After several days of training and climbing, the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons team reached the summit of Mt. Rainier yesterday via the Emmons Glacier. The team reported high winds overnight and delayed their departure from Camp Schurman.  Winds abated and they had a nice climb to the summit.  The team returned to Camp Schurman for their final night on the mountain. This morning they will break camp, descend to the trail head and return to Ashford.

Congratulations to the team!

Early season is tough on Rainier. It’s more miss than hit until July 4th.

We’re scheduled for a 5 day in mid-june… In looking through the blog I don’t see any successful summits this season… is there a summary we can see that provides some insight into how things are going in order to judge our chances (weather permitting) of success ?
