Mt. Rainier: Four Day Team Reach Summit led by Wittmier & Parrinello

The Four Day Climb August 7 - 10 led by RMI Guides Dustin Wittmier and Avery Parrinello reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning around 6:30 am PT.  The team enjoyed a light breeze and good visibility under an overcast sky. They spent time crossing the crater to reach Columbia Crest, the highest point on Mt. Rainier and in Washington.  After taking all the photos and enjoying the views, the team left the crater rim just after 8 am PT.  They will travel 4.5 miles and 4,500' retracing their steps from early this morning to return to Camp Muir.  Once they have removed their glacier travel gear and repacked their backpacks, they will continue another 4.5 miles and 4,500' back to Paradise.

Nice work today team!  Congratulations!

Mt. Rainier: Haugen & Kautz Seminar Team on Top!

RMI Guide Mike Haugen checked in via radio at 7:40 am as the Kautz Seminar July 18 - 23 team was just reaching the crater rim.  The team did well and climbed strong from their camp at the top of the Wapowety Cleaver.  After enjoying the views from the summit the team will descend via the Disappointment Cleaver route.  This group met at Rainier BaseCamp on Sunday, July 18 and after two days of off mountain training began their ascent via the Kautz Glacier Route.  Their time on the mountain included glacier travel training as well as focusing on techniques required for the current conditions on the upper mountain.  The team will conclude their program with a celebration in Ashford later today.

Congratulations to the Kautz Seminar climbers!

Mt. Rainier: Four Day Teams Summit on 4th of July

RMI's Four Day Climb teams for July 1 - 4 led by RMI Guides Pete Van Deventer & Mike King reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning at 5:40 am.  Pete reported a nice day with light winds, really nice climbing conditions and a great route.  The climbs spent some time in the crater enjoying the views and getting all the photo ops.  They began their descent from the crater rim around 7 am.  Once back at Camp Muir they will repack and continue down to Paradise to conclude their climb.

We want to give a shout out to RMI Guides Henry Coppollilo and Leif Bergstrom who spent a long day on route work earlier this week and really worked hard to improve the route.  Thank you!

Congratulations to today's climber

Mt. Rainier: Four Day Climbs Unable to Climb due to High Winds

The Four Day Climb June 8 - 11 led by RMI Guides Walter Hailes and Dominic Cifelli were unable to make their summit attempt this morning.  Strong winds and blowing snow made for unsafe climbing conditions and kept the team hunkered down at Camp Muir over night.  The telemetry from Camp Muir shows wind averages ranging from mid 20 to mid 60 mph over night with gusts up to 79 mph.  When the group radioed the office this morning they were experiencing estimated 50 mph winds. The team will be descending from Camp Muir today and return to Rainier BaseCamp.  Unfortunately, today was not their day to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier.

Mt. Rainier: Five Day Climb Teams Unable to Reach Summit

The Five Day Climb June 3 - 7, 2021 is completing their climb today.  The teams did training at Paradise on Friday with instruction on cramponing, rope travel and ice axe arrest.  On Saturday they made the ascent from Paradise to Camp Muir.  Yesterday, they enjoyed some additional time walking in crampons and working as a rope team by walking to Ingraham Flats at 11,200'.  This allowed them to see abit of the route in the day light hours.  They planned their summit attempt for today but unfortuaty the team was unable to make a summit attempt due to high winds.  According to the Camp Muir Telemetry wind averages were 34 - 53 mph with gusts up to 68 mph.

The teams will descend from Camp Muir to Paradise and make the drive back to Ashford. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.
