Mt. Baker: ALA Climb for Clean Air Reaches the Summit!

The American Lung Association’s Climb for Clean Air team reached the summit of Mt. Baker today with 100% success!  RMI Guide Steve Gately reported a great climb and good route conditions. The views were hard to come by to the smoke lingering over Western Washington, but the team had a great time!

Congratulations to today’s team!

This was an amazing climb for me and much of it due to the patient, clear instruction, leadership and encouragement from our guides.  They were professional in their teaching and serious about our safety, while maintainig a sense of levity that made the experience unforgettable. And I learned a ton!

Mt. Rainier: Emmons Seminar To the Top

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons, led by Mike King, is back at camp after their summit day.  The team walked into a cloud cap as they began their ascent.  Winds sustained at 40 mph with gusts of 50 mph.  Now back at Camp Schurman, the winds are dying down and the cap is slowly diminishing.  Other than that, not a cloud in the sky.
Tomorrow they will descend from Camp Schurman and drive back to Ashford where they will celebrate their week on Mt. Rainier!

Mt. Rainier: King & Emmons Seminar Team Make Summit Attempt

RMI Guides Mike King, Jenny Konway, Jessie Poquerusse and Ben Ammon are leading the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons June 11 - 16, 2017.  The team met on Sunday and spent the day discussing logistics of the trip including an equipment check and some technical training.  Their second day was spent on the slopes above Paradise practicing rope travel, ice axe arrest and cramponing techniques.  On Tuesday morning they loaded up in the shuttle and drove to the White River Campground where they met the trail head and started their climb.  Yesterday they moved to Camp Schurman at 9,440’ and have continued their training.  This morning they made their summit attempt but due to low visibility and tough walking the team made the tough decision to turn around 11,400’.  They have returned to Camp Schurman where they will do some additional training.  They will spend their last night on the mountain tonight and start their descent tomorrow.  We look forward to seeing them back at Rainier BaseCamp tomorrow afternoon.
