Mt. Rainier: Four Day Summit Climb Teams Reach Summit

RMI Guides Robby Young and Ben Liken led the May 8 - 11 Four Day Climb teams to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Climbing conditions were good with lots of climbers on the mountain.  The weather is beautiful with warm temperatures and clear skies.  Once back at Camp Muir the teams will continue down to Paradise and return to Rainier BaseCamp.

Congratulations to today’s climbers!

This was a great experience for me and my two boys, that we will never forget. Our team of climbers was made up of a great mix of people who all came together to get to the top. I’m proud have climbed with you guys and you’ve inspired me to be better.

On the guides; A thing I learned very early in my Marine Corps career was how to spot professionalism and raw, unfiltered competence. This is especially important when serving in a combat zone. You learn quick to spot people who know what the hell they are talking about because lives and mission rest on it. From the very first meeting it was very obvious to me that Rob, Josh and Chad had this talent in abundance and it became even more evident on the mountain. Thanks guys, you humbled this old Jarhead (not easy, lol), with your knowledge, physical ability and spot on climbing guidance.

I hope we get to climb together again soon

PS: Tell Josh I’m working on my walking skills and hope to cut my future descent trip/falling to less than 10 per mile. ;).

Mt. Rainier: Teams Give Their All

Today was a day of weather on Mt. Rainier.  Unfortunately, that weather was not cooperating for the summit climb teams and they were turned back at 8,500’.  Mountaineering has its weather uncertainties- we take what Mother Nature deals to us.  Today was not a day for aces but there will be more days in the mountains. 
A great effort by the team today.

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.

Mt. Rainier: Four Day Summit Climb Teams on the Summit!

The Four Day Summit Climb teams are standing in the summit crater of Mt. Rainier as of 7AM PT this morning.  RMI Guides Robby Young and Hannah Smith led their teams to Camp Muir yesterday and awoke them around midnight to start their summit climb.  Robby reported a light breeze and a very nice day above the top of Disappointment Cleaver where they were happy to find clear air.  After enjoying some time on top, the teams will return to Camp Muir and continue down to Paradise.  This afternoon they will enjoy some beverages and a celebration to end their Four Day Summit Climb program.
