Mt. Rainier: Ascending Teams Abort Summit Climb

Today’s Mt. Rainier Summit Climb teams, which were headed to Camp Muir for their summit attempt tomorrow morning, aborted their climb at 7,700’.  As they were ascending, the weather continued to deteriorate. After climbing several hours in the storm, the guides made the call to turn the climb and descend back to Paradise.  This afternoon the teams returned safely back to Rainier Basecamp in Ashford.

Peru Seminar: Young & Team Celebrate Their Success in Huaraz

Saturday, July 14, 2018 - 4:10 PM PT

Hello world!

We’re back in Huaraz! The team is all safe and sound in the friendly, and bustling, city of Huaraz after a wonderful four days in the Llanganuco Valley. We saw amazing nights skies; we endured unusual Cordillera Blanca weather, and we summited an amazing mountain in Pisco Oeste, at 18,871’.

The stars aligned for us during our last climbing objective here in Peru. For a while, it seemed that the weather wouldn’t cooperate and would prohibit us from climbing to the highest summit of our trip. But with a bit of improvisation, and a little extra hard work by the team, we achieved our goal, climbed in good style, and snuck in Pisco’s summit in the only 12-hour window of good weather the mountains would muster over the past four days. We’re counting our lucky stars back here in the city, and we’re prepping for our last celebratory dinner to share stories, lessons, and reflect on the past two weeks we’ve spent together in one of the most beautiful mountain ranges on Earth. Tonight is our team’s last night to experience some of Peru’s finest cuisine as the recovery stage of our climbing begins. Chances are some folks will indulge in the local favorite, Cuy, a.k.a. Guinea Pig. Don’t worry, we won’t send pictures. Meanwhile, enjoy some photos of our most recent climb! We’re back to sea-level tomorrow as our team begins the long journey home. One more final post tomorrow, before you all see your loved ones once again!

Until then, hasta luego!

RMI Guides Robby Young, Alan Davis, William, and Peru Team “Pisco”

Peru Seminar: Young & Team Summit Pisco Oeste!

Friday, July 13, 2018 - 8:07 PM PT

Greetings!

Today, around 7:45am, your ESS-Peru Team was standing on top of Pisco Oeste! Due to weather yesterday, we made the climb from Base Camp at 15,200’ rather than moving camp higher on the mountain. The ‘audible’ paid off, and we were lucky to spend most of our 12-hour day of climbing under clear skies! The views from Pisco are famous in the Cordillera Blanca, as you’re surrounded on all sides by some of the highest mountains in the range. We spent a good while on the summit today, just below 19,000’, enjoying our last summit of the trip to its fullest. The climbing was superb to boot. The unsettled weather over the past few days laid down a fresh coat of light snow throughout the range. What a treat it was to break trail above 18,000’! After our climb, most of us settled into our tents all afternoon, recovering from our long day. Tomorrow, the comforts of city living await in Huaraz. We’ll send pics when we arrive! Until then, buenos noches.

RMI Guides Robby Young, Alan Davis, William, and Peru Team ‘Cuy’
