Aconcagua: Gorum & Team Depart Mendoza, Prepare to Start Trek

Today the team said goodbye to Mendoza for a while. After a leisurely breakfast of pastries, and more pastries, we finished off the process of obtaining our Aconcagua climbing permits. We only experienced a few hang ups in the permit office, which is about par for the course.
We amassed our gear into one big pile in the hotel lobby, partly to prepare to load it into our trailer, and partly just to see how much stuff we have. In my professional opinion we brought enough stuff, judging by volume alone. After transferring our pile into a vehicle, we hit the road to Penitentes. A few naps, and more than a few empanadas later, we arrived in Penitentes.
This afternoon, we packed everything for our travel to Aconcagua Base Camp. Everything has to be packed such that it doesn’t get destroyed on the mules. The team made quick work of that task, leaving us plenty of down time before dinner. I’m pretty sure most people took another nap. Tomorrow morning we will hit the dusty trail, and things for us will get much simpler. For a few days we will just walk, eat, and sleep. Everyone is looking forward to it. We’ll let you know how it goes.

Aconcagua: Gorum & Team Meet in Mendoza

The team has arrived in Mendoza. All baggage is accounted for, gear is checked, and dinner has been eaten. After a long day of travel we are hitting the hay relatively early. Tomorrow we will drive to Penitentes and get everything organized and packed for the walk in to base camp. The team is excited to get out of town and into the mountains. Stay tuned, and find out what happens next.

Shuksan: Nelson & the Expeditions Skills Seminar Check in

This is Chase and team checking in from the Sulphide Glacier! After three days of almost constant snowfall we finally enjoyed a bit of a break in the weather and even had a few hours of sun. About a foot of snow has fallen since our arrival but the training has continued as planned. Tomorrow we’re going to venture higher up towards the pyramid and see if conditions are suitable for a summit attempt. We’ll check in tomorrow afternoon!

I was a part of the group from NY and I only made it to the Disappointment Cleaver (DC). However I had a great time and learn a lot. JM & Casey were both great leaders and lots of fan to be with. Thank you both .

Mt. Rainier: Four Day Climb Reaches the Summit

RMI Guides Casey Grom and JM Gorum led their teams to the Mt. Rainier summit this morning.  It was clear on top with some smoky air, due to the British Columbia wildfires, on the lower flanks of the mountain.  The team is making great progress on their descent back to Camp Muir.

Mt. Elbrus: Gorum & Team Tour St. Petersburg

The team made it to St. Petersburg yesterday. We went out to a nice team dinner, and a few folks left early this morning to get back home. The rest of the group spent the day touring the wonderful city of St. Petersburg. The cathedrals and palaces here are ornate beyond measure. We spent the afternoon cruising through the canals on our own private boat, and finished the evening with an excellent dinner at the historic Astoria Hotel, complete with a celebrity appearance.
Most of the team leaves early tomorrow morning for the U.S. It’s been a great trip all around. Thanks to all of the team, and to everybody following along.

Mt. Elbrus: Gorum & Team Reach the Summit of Europe’s Highest Peak

Hey, this is JM Gorum checking from Mt. Elbrus. We are not on the summit right now but we were a few hours ago.  The team summited around 9 am local time.  It was pretty windy up there so we didn’t hang out for too long. Thankfully it was also quite warm, but now we’re almost back down to the huts.  The team did an excellent job. We are planning to go all the way back down to Cheget today.  We will check in later and let you know how that goes. The team says says hi to everyone at home.

Mt. Elbrus: Gorum & Team Ready for Summit Bid

After a windy night, the team awoke to blue skies and a relatively calm breeze. We spent the first half of the day reviewing skills like rope travel and self arrest. The remainder of the day has been spent relaxing, prepping gear for our summit attempt of Mt. Elbrus tomorrow morning, and watching some very acrobatic birds fly around camp. We are pretty much ready to go, now we just wait and hope for good weather. You’ll hear from us tomorrow!
