Mt. Rainier: Four Day Teams Unable to Climb due to Weather

The Four Day Summit Climb September 7 - 10, 2018 led by RMI Guides Pete Van Deventer and JM Gorum were unable to make a summit attempt.  High winds and precipitation kept the groups from making their summit attempt. They will be descending from Camp Muir to Paradise this morning and will return to Rainier BaseCamp in the early afternoon.

Mt. Rainier: Van Deventer & Team Reach the Summit!

Around 7:20 AM PT the Four Day Summit Climb August 22 - 25 led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer rolled into the crater of Mt. Rainier.  Pete reported a light breeze with some high clouds above and a low marine layer near Paradise.  There was a beautiful sunrise this morning as they were making their ascent and the temperature was not too cold.  The team will enjoy some time in the summit crater before starting their descent.  Once back to Camp Muir they will pack up and continue down to Paradise.  A celebration at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon will conclude their program.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb team!

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!
