Mt. Rainier: Elias, McDowell, & Team Reach The Crater Rim

RMI Lead Guides Elias de Andres Martos and Josh McDowell radioed from the top of Mt. Rainier to report a successful climb. Elias reported that the weather was so good the team only needed their base layer for upper body insulation. The team will spend some time enjoying the summit before descending back to Camp Muir where they will overnight before descending back to Paradise tomorrow.

Congratulations to today’s team!

Alaska Seminar: Elias & Team Waiting out the Weather

Good morning from The Ruth Glacier.

Thirty hours of straight precipitation that started pretty much as we got to camp after summitting Mt. Dickey, kept us in our tents all day yesterday. The rain only turned into snow as the temperatures dropped with the night. We’re currently waking up to a couple inches of fresh, heavy wet snow. But we are very happy! The name of the game was to stay dry and to eat good food; steak with quinoa and stir fried vegetables was an insuperable rest day dinner.
Stand by to see what the weather brings today.

Corell, Lucy and Elias

Alaska Seminar: Elias & Team Check in After Mt Dickey Climb

Sunday, May 26, 2019 - 8:16 AM PT

Hello from the Ruth Glacier Base Camp.
What a great day and climb we had yesterday. Our climb of Mount Dickey went well and while better accomplished over 2 days, we had to single push it in order to nail the weather. Saved by the bell, we pulled back into camp as the rain started, and it’s been coming down ever since. Double reason for a well deserved rest day today. We’ll enjoy a good steak (and I’m not kidding) meal and revisit our climb that provided arguably the best views of the Alaska Range.

Regards, Lucy, Corell and Elías

Alaska Seminar: Elias & Team Fly onto the Ruth Glacier

Friday, May 24, 2019, 7:58 PM PT

Hello from the Great Ruth Gorge!

The magnitude of this place soon relieved the delay of not being able to fly yesterday. Cruising over a 35-mile long glacier to then land and camp under the massive 5,000ft East Face of Mount Dickey is indescribable. After a couple of hours crafting a classy camp, kitchen included, we treated ourselves to a nice diner of halibut burger with a side of fresh asparagus; definitely not your standard meal on the mountains. Heading to bed now as we’re trying our first climbing objective early tomorrow.

Regards, Lucy, Corell and RMI Guide Elías de Andres Martos

Ama Dablam: Elias & Team Await Flight from Lukla

And it is a wrap up!

The last two days have been probably the quickest to go by. Descending from Ama Dablam Base Camp was an easy task, enhanced by every step we took, as every foot of elevation we lost, made our bodies invigorate.

Joining the main Everest trail was a colorful experience of different nationalities, which we almost forgot in the relatively isolated expedition we had.

Arriving in Lukla definitely provides a sense of accomplishment, closing the trail loop we started nearly one month ago.

Now we are at the mercy of the weather to leave the mountains behind in our airplane tomorrow.

Ama Dablam: Elias & Team Return to Base Camp, Unable to Summit

Hello from Ama Dablam Base Camp!
Are you unsuccessful when you don’t reach the summit of one of your objectives?
Well, I think that if you have carefully prepared for it and put yourself in the best position for it, despite little odds in our favor according to the forecast, and you make the decision to head down because the one thing you can’t control is totally out of control, then yes, you’re successful.
It was windy when we arrived at our High Camp, it was windy throughout our short stay, and it was like a freight train when it was time to go. There’s no way we could fight on the steep, cold and dangerous slopes of Ama’s southeast ridge what “Eolus” had in store for us. So the only thing we could do, knowing that we had waited until the very last day, was to be smart and head down. Undefeated, because in the mountains what counts is telling the story. But sure disappointed to not to have been able to climb just a bit more.
But oh well, we’re now back to the safety of our lodge at Base Camp, and we’ll stay our descent tomorrow, eager for thicker air and why not, to start closing up our Himalayan adventure.

Ama Dablam: Elias & Team Check in from Camp 2

Namaste from Ama Dablam Camp 2,

We climbed to the famous Yellow Tower, surmounting the most technical terrain that this route presents. We dragged our feet leaving Camp 1 as to get bathed by the sun a little bit. Then we crossed with ease the beautiful yet incredibly exposed crest with several hundreds of feet to drop on either side, contemplating how the now distant Base Camp became smaller and smaller down in the valley.
The winds are strong here, but the sun shines and it is comfortable inside the tents. Air feels thin, but our acclimatization process has been productive. We’re going to hope for the best with the winds and we will put up a good fight, smart though, but we won’t know until we get higher later tomorrow morning.
We sure hope to make a phone call from the summit!

Ama Dablam: Elias & Team at Camp 1 on Summit Push

Hello! We are at C1. A long day brought us here under clear skies. We’re alone here and we presume it will be the same at C2 when we arrive later today.
Not much to report other than we had an incredible sunset last night, perched here on Ama Dablam’s ridge. Let’s keep hoping for the winds to die in the next day or two!

Ama Dablam: Elias & Team Ready for Summit Bid


And we are going up! After another rest day at Ama Dablam Base Camp, all is packed and ready and we are starting our summit bid.
We know that the winds are forecasted to be strong, so it is going to be a toss up. But we continue to see blue skies every day, so we’re going to do what’s common in these cases, “prepare for the worst and hope for the best.”

Stay tuned for our progress up high!
