Mt. Rainier: Bond, Scott, & Team Retreat in Blizzard-like Conditions

The Four Day Climb teams led by Andy Bond and Nick Scott heading up to Camp Muir for their climb tomorrow, September 16th, decided to retreat in the face of blizzard conditions. The team made it just past Pebble Creek and onto the Muir Snowfield despite heavy rains. However, at about 7,300’ the heavy rains quickly turned into blowing sideways ice and snow which forced them to make the collective safety decision to turn around and head back to Paradise. The team made their descent and are back in town wearing dry layers and sipping warm drinks.

Mt. Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz Reaches 13,100’

RMI Guide Nick Scott and the Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz team was unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier today. Poor route conditions forced the team to call 13,100’ their high point. The team will spend a final night on the mountain before finishing their descent tomorrow. We look forward to seeing them in Ashford tomorrow afternoon.

Mt. Rainier: Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons Summit!

After a week of training learning alpine mountaineering techniques preparing for future expeditions like Denali and Aconcagua, the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons team reached the summit of Mt. Rainier. The team had an early alpine start from Camp Schurman and worked their way up the Emmons glacier and are now standing on the summit of Mt. Rainier! They will spend some time on top enjoying the clear skies and views before starting the descent back to camp. 

Congratulations to today’s Team!

The link in my previous comment did not come through. It was a story about 2 women who did the Rainier Infinity Loop: Climb from Paradise to the summit, descend the Emmons Route to White River, run half the Wonderland Trail back to Paradise, summit and descend to White River again, and run the other half of the Wonderland Trail—a total of 130 miles and 40,000 vertical feet. They were hoping to beat the record of 59.4 hours but had to turn back on at Camp Muir on their second climb due to the storm on Saturday. They went back to Paradise, had a nap, and then headed back up, ultimately finishing the loop in just over 4 days, not a record but still amazing. It sounds like they descended the Emmons Route the second time on Monday, not Sunday as I said in my previous comment.

Congratulations to Chuck, Jaquelin, and everyone else!

Did you happen to see these women descending the Emmons route on Sunday? https://www-1.thenewstribune.com/news/local/article233548707.html

Denali Expedition: Young & Team Homeward Bound

Saturday, June 15, 2019 - 9:17 AM PT

Greetings all,

And just like that, we’re back in civilization. Just two days ago, we were standing on top of North America, at 20,310’, after a long and demanding effort over the course of two weeks. And now, green grass, crowded Talkeetna streets and restaurants, and the comforts (and burdens) of modern technology and bustling civilization. It’s quite a shock to the system. But here we are, tired after finishing our walk out to Base Camp Friday morning, celebrating our expedition and our success here in Talkeetna. We enjoyed a wonderful celebratory dinner at the Wildflower Cafe with fresh seafood as the fare of choice, and reminisced about all the experiences we’ve shared over the last few weeks. It’s been an incredible couple weeks, and all the Team should be incredibly proud of their accomplishment! We’re headed back to Anchorage this morning to put the final steps of a great adventure in place, and head back to our friends and family. Thanks for following along all these weeks!

Denali Expedition: Young & Team Descend to 11K Camp

Thursday, June 13, 2019 - 9:32 PM PT

We’re back down here in the thick air of 11,000’! We were so excited to wake up to another beautiful day at 17 Camp this morning, and we were still ecstatic from a fantastic summit day yesterday. Despite some crunchy, achy bodies this morning, we were up and attem as early as reasonable to start making our way back down to the airstrip, and eventually home. We’ve paused our descent for just a few hours here at 11 Camp to get some rest and recovery, and we’ll then continue our way to the airstrip tonight around midnight, when the lower Kahiltna Glacier is firmed up overnight. Hopefully the weather allows for a flight off the glacier first thing in the morning. Wish us luck, and hopefully see all you friends and family soon!
