Mt. Rainier: Walter & Team Summit on Beautiful Day

RMI Guide Mike Walter reported that it is a beautiful day on Mt. Rainier with clear skies and moderate winds. Mike and the Four Day Climb August 16 - 19 reached the summit early this morning and after enjoying some time in the summit crater started their descent.  Those of us in Ashford and the lower elevations are below a heavy marine layer, Camp Muir and the upper mountain have mostly clear skies and sunshine. The team will descend to Paradise later today and celebrate their accomplishments before concluding their program.

Congratulations to today’s Four Day Climb team!

Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Continue Wait for better Weather

Sunday, June 30, 2019 - 5:16 PM PT

We’re enjoying the thick air at Camp 4, at 14,200’ in Genet Basin. We got a good night’s sleep last night, slept in this morning and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast of bagels, cream cheese, and bacon. An ample coffee. Today we are resting and waiting for colder temps by which to travel. There is a weather front affecting Denali right now, bringing winds up high and clouds and precipitation down low. We’re sitting in between in the sun and happy at 14k. Our hope is that we can travel through the night down the Kahiltna Glacier to the Basecamp Airstrip and that cloud and precip will dissipate tomorrow so that we can fly back to Talkeetna. We’ll let you know how it goes.

I’m sure they’d rather celebrate with their new friends at Club 14 than rush home.

Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Descend Back to 14K Camp

Saturday, June 29, 2019 - 4:46 PM PT

After a good night’s sleep at high camp we woke up with the sun, had breakfast, and packed up camp. We descended the West Buttress and the fixed ropes on the Headwall and made it back to the 14k Camp by noon to beat the heat of the day.
We’ve decided to spend the night here and rest. Our plan is to spend tomorrow here also and wait until colder weather at night to travel back to the airstrip at Kahiltna Basecamp. With any luck we will be flying back to Talkeetna on Monday. We’ll keep you posted with our downhill progress. But for now we’re enjoying some well-deserved rest in preparation for a long descent.

Denali Expedition: Walter & Team Reach the Top of North America!

Friday, June 28, 2019 - 8:38 PM PT

The wind last night was strong, but it tapered in the morning. And it was crystal clear. We left camp and tackled the Autobahn up to Denali Pass where we were finally greeted by sunlight. Then it was up past Zebra Rocks and into the Football Field. One last climb up Pig Hill and we were on the exposed, corniced summit ridge. Everyone from our team summited today. It was a beautiful and warm summit day with only a breath of wind. Ten hours round trip and we’re back at camp getting ready to eat dinner. Tomorrow we’ll bump down to 14K and play it by ear from there.
