RMI Guide Jack Delaney led the Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise July 14 - 19. The team met last Thursday for their orientation and gear check. The next morning they went straight to the mountain. Their first camps were above Paradise and they used the terrain for training, getting everyone up to speed on cramponing, glacier travel and ice axe arrest skills. Additional training took place as the group slowly ascended over the next few days. Yesterday the team made the jump to Camp Muir. After dinner and discussion about the climb ahead they crawled into sleeping bags for a few hours of rest. With an alpine start the team left Camp Muir, they reached the summit after 6 hours of climbing, approaching the crater rim around 7 am. After enjoying the views and photo ops from the summit the team is returning to Camp Muir. Once back at Camp they will pack up and continue the final 4.5 miles back to Paradise. Their program concludes today with a celebration once they return to Rainier BaseCamp.
Nice work team! We hope you enjoyed your time on the mountain!

Today's Mt. Rainier Summit Climb teams, led by RMI Guides Pete Van Deventer and Walter Hailes, turned due to hazardous route conditions. The teams ascended to Ingraham Flats to watch the sunrise before descending back to Camp Muir where they had breakfast. They left Camp Muir around 9:45 a.m. and are working their way back to Paradise.

The Mt. Rainier Summit Climb, led by RMI Guides Pete Van Deventer and Grayson Swingle, turned at 13,000' due to an impasse on the route. The team reported light wind and precipitation earlier this morning. They are currently descending to Camp Muir where they will pack up their remaining gear and continue onto Paradise.
Best of Luck and Best of Experience !!
