Mt. Rainier: Avalanche Assessment Keeps Teams from the Summit

The Mt. Rainier Summit Climbs, led by Casey Grom and Nick Hunt, watched the sunrise from Ingraham Flats this morning before heading back to Camp Muir.  The guides assessed unfavorable avalanche conditions, which kept them from the upper mountain.  Both teams are back at Rainier Basecamp, safe and sound.


Mt. Rainier: Teams Turn Due to Weather and Route Conditions

The Mt. Rainier Summit Climb teams turned due to avalanche conditions, deteriorating weather and winds.  A fair amount of new snow has occurred on the mountain with drifts up to one meter.  RMI Guides Casey Grom and Nick Hunt are currently descending from Camp Muir back to Paradise.

Better Weatherluck Next Time!

We both would like to thank the entire RMI team for your help throughout the climb in the challenging conditions and we feel that we have learned more from those few days with you than any other experience. We also loved hearing about your various climbs.

We had a great time meeting the rest of the climbers and sharing stories. Best of luck in their next endeavors!

We hope to be back next summer with better conditions and even more prepared. It’s defnitely not to be underestimated.

Thanks again
Kelly & Kieran
