Mt. Rainier: Muir Seminar Teams Reach Summit on Gorgeous Day

After learning cramponing, rope travel, ice axe arrest and crevasse rescue skills, to name a few, the Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir made their summit attempt today.  The teams have been training at Camp Muir since their arrival on Monday. 
RMI Guides Pete Van Deventer and Adam Knoff lead their teams to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning on a beautiful, clear and windless day. They will enjoy the views, give hugs and high fives and take a few photos before beginning their descent from the crater rim.  They will return to Camp Muir for their final night on the mountain.  Tomorrow they will descend to Paradise and return to Rainier BaseCamp for a celebration and wrap up of their week together on the mountain.

Congratulations to today’s teams!

Mt. Rainier: Van Deventer & Team Enjoy Clear Skies for their Summit Climb

The Four Day Summit Climb August 9 - 12 led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning with clear skies, light winds and cool temps.  The team enjoyed some time on the crater before beginning their descent just before 9 AM.  There is a marine layer around 6,500’ with clear skies above.  We will see if that dissipates before the team descends to Paradise.

Congratulations to today’s climbers!

Mt. Baker: Van Deventer & Team Train on the Easton

Thursday, August 2 - 5:36 PM PT

We had a great day of training on the lower slopes of the Easton Glacier today. Some clouds moved over at times, shading us from the sun, which was a blessing. We used our type travel segment to move up the glacier and get a view of the whole route. Things look great and we are set for our summit push tonight!

Mt. Baker: Van Deventer & Team Settle in to Camp

We had a gorgeous walk into the Easton on Mt. Baker today. Perfect weather, incredible views, wildflowers, and great company. We’re at camp at 6400’ at the toe of the Easton glacier, getting ready to enjoy dinner. After a good size day and heavy packs, we are looking forward to our sleeping bags!
