The Four Day Climb led by RMI Guides Robby Young and Joe Hoch were turned around at Ingraham Flats due to high winds and blowing snow. The team returned to Camp Muir and enjoyed a brief break in the weather. The team left Camp Muir around 9:30 am en route to Paradise. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

The Four Day Climb led by RMI Guides Robby Young and Andy Bond reached the summit of Mt. Rainier early this morning. The team reported warm weather, and a great route. They spent some time on the top enjoying the views before starting their descent at 8:00 am PDT.
Contgratulations to Today's Team!
Congrats, big time! You will enjoy it the rest of your life! I have climbed it 4 times, one unsuccessful, so I guess 5 attempts and 4 successes. Best I remember, 2 in 1969 and 1970, 1 in 1972 and 1 in 1976. It has brought me joy ever since then. bb

The Five Day Climb led by RMI Guides Robby Young and Avery Parrinello climbed the Ingraham Direct route and were able to reach 11,800' before high winds forced them to turn. The team spent two days at Camp Muir on this climb and will be descending later this morining. We expect them back at Rainier Basecamp to clelebrate this afternoon.
Congratiulations to Today's Team!
Almost 48° north. Can be tough weather any time of year. Getting to the top is optional, getting down is mandatory. Believe that was a quote from Ed Viesturs.
Good attempt! The adventure was still exhilarating I’m sure.
My greatest accomplishment was summiting Mount Washington here in the northeast around the same time of year probably 25 yrs ago.

Thanks again for for the experience! Not all the way to the top for me, but still an unbelievable view and great challenge. You guys are professional, empathetic, and caring of your clients, and one couldn’t ask for anything more. I’ll be back for the challenge, and we’ll get it done.
