Mt. Baker: Mazaika & Team on the Summit!

7:58 AM PT

Hi this is Bryan calling from the Mt. Baker Coleman-Demming climb. We went up and over the Roman Wall and the team is celebrating on the summit as we speak.  We have beautiful conditions, calm winds, sunny and reasonably clear.  We have great views of the North Cascades, Glacier Peak and Mt. Rainier from a distance.  We are enjoying our break up here and we will spend a little bit more time.  We have a solid effort to get back to our camp at Hog’s Back.  Everyone is doing great.  When we get back to camp we will pack up and eventually we will head out back to Glacier.  We will wrap of the trip with a celebration with pizza and beer.  IT’s been a solid effort by the team, we are super proud of everyone.  Thanks for following.

Mt. Rainier: Van Deventer & Team Reach the Summit!

Around 7:20 AM PT the Four Day Summit Climb August 22 - 25 led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer rolled into the crater of Mt. Rainier.  Pete reported a light breeze with some high clouds above and a low marine layer near Paradise.  There was a beautiful sunrise this morning as they were making their ascent and the temperature was not too cold.  The team will enjoy some time in the summit crater before starting their descent.  Once back to Camp Muir they will pack up and continue down to Paradise.  A celebration at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon will conclude their program.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb team!

Mt. Baker: Matthews & Team Abandon Summit Attempt Due to Route Conditions

Monday, August 6 - 9:00 AM PT

Jess Matthews checked in this morning on the Coleman-Deming route to report that the team turned around at 8,500’ due to an newly opened and impassable crevasse. They made their descent safely back to camp and back to the parking lot where they will head into town for fresh food and hot showers.

Mt. Baker: Matthews & Team Train for Summit Day

Today was another beautiful day on the lower slopes of Mt. Baker. We started with a leisurely breakfast and then packed our gear for a short walk above camp to reach the snow and our training site. After a good day of training, we’re relaxing in our tents before dinner and then off to bed before we gear up again early in the morning for the real thing. The team is looking forward to heading uphill to put our new skills to use with the summit in our sights!

Mt. Baker: Matthews & Team Settle Into Camp After First Day On Mountain

We had a beautiful walk into camp today. Temps were cool, the bugs left us alone, and we made smooth work with heavy packs. We were greeted by a blanket of wildflowers and the sound of waterfalls as we made our way above the tree line into camp at the edge of the Coleman Glacier. Everyone is feeling good and settling in to camp life here at 5,900’. We’ll take advantage of a full night of sleep before beginning our training tomorrow on the slopes around camp in preparation for our summit climb.

Mt. Baker: Van Deventer & Team Train on the Easton

Thursday, August 2 - 5:36 PM PT

We had a great day of training on the lower slopes of the Easton Glacier today. Some clouds moved over at times, shading us from the sun, which was a blessing. We used our type travel segment to move up the glacier and get a view of the whole route. Things look great and we are set for our summit push tonight!
