Mt. Rainier: Four Day Teams Reach Ingraham Flats, Enjoy Sunrise

The Four Day Climb September 1 - 4 teams led by Dave Hahn and Abby Westling climbed to Ingraham Flats this morning and were able to enjoy the sunrise.  The teams were unable to climb higher due to route conditions.  As of 7:45 am all climbers had returned to Camp Muir. They plan to begin their descent from Camp Muir to Paradise around 9:30 am.  Thus the teams should reach Paradise around noon today.  Once back at Rainier BaseCamp they will conclude their program.

Great trip and experience with “Team A.”  Thanks to our guides and the positive energy and helping us maximize our time.  Will definitely travel with RMI again.

I had a great time spending a few days on Mount Rainier. Sure, the route was cut short, but Dave, Joey and Jenna pulled out all the stops to make this a memorable climb and make me appreciate the many facets of the mountain!
Thank you,
Alex

Mt. Rainier: Four Day Climb Unable to Summit, Reach 12,300’

The Four Day Climb August 28 - 31 led by RMI Guides Avery Parrinello and Jack Delaney were unable to summit today.  Climbers reached 12,300, the top of Disappointment Cleaver, before deciding to turn back due to unfavorable route conditions and warm temperatures.  The teams were back to Camp Muir just after 7 am.  They took some time to repack before beginning their descent from Camp Muir back to Paradise. We expect the groups to be at Rainier BaseCamp in the early afternoon.

My son Lucas was roped up with each of the guides at some point during the climb and had nothing but praise for all of them.  My wife and I want to thank Mira, George, Casey, and Dustin for leading a safe, informative, and successful climb!  Cheers to all of you!

Hey all, glad to hear you had a successful trip! I’m looking at climbing via the emmons the week of July 4th and would be interested in hearing how things are looking up there given all the late precipitation this year. Please shoot me an email if you’re able to share any beta! Thanks

Great effort. Sorry for falling over and dropping my ski pole (to be fair, I feel I corrected both in epic style…). Guides to die for.

Posted by: Simon on 5/25/2022 at 8:14 am

Fantastic! I’m on the 4 day 2nd/3rd next week.  Great job!
