Mt. Rainier: Five Day Climb Teams Enjoy Perfect Day

The Five Day Climb June 3 - 7 reached the summit of Mt. Rainier today. After training and climbing the last few days the teams put their training to work. The climbing teams enjoyed some time in the crater before starting their descent around 8:30 am. From the crater rim, RMI Guide Dave Hahn reported a perfect day with no wind and beautiful conditions. The teams will return to Camp Muir and then continue their descent to Paradise later today.

Congratulations to today's climbers!

Mt. Rainier: Five Day Climb Descending From Camp Muir

The Five Day Climb April 28 - 2 May led by RMI Guides Andy Bond and Dustin Wittmier are descending from Camp Muir this morning.  The team made the most of their time on the mountain getting in a Climbing school to learn cramponing, rope travel and ice axe arrest techniques.  They then ascended to Camp Muir, 10,080', where they spent two nights and were able to do additional training.  Lightning near Camp Muir and high winds kept the team from making a summit attempt this morning.  We look forward to seeing them back at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Mt. Rainier: Four Day Climb Teams on the Summit

The Four Day Climb August 17 - 20 led by RMI Guides Mike Walter and Nikki Champion reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Mike reported moderate winds and a busy route.  Camp Muir sandwiched between two layers of clouds, dense clouds above Camp Muir and a light marine layer above Paradise currently.  The climbers will take a short break at Camp Muir to repack and re-hydrate before starting down to Paradise.  Once at Paradise the shuttle will return the climbers to Rainier BaseCamp where they will conclude their program with a short ceremony.

Nice work today everyone!

Been following the blog all summer, making my own attempt on 8/29.  Curious if that picture is from
Today and where is it on the route? 

Bummer about the wind but congrats on getting that high!

That was Kristian Whittaker’s 25th Birthday - climb.  How cool he summited with his sister, Gabriella and her boyfriend Leif.  I, Erika, was so fortunate to meet up with the kids at Camp Muir and walk back to Paradise with them and with Brent Okita and my good friend, Anne M.  So grateful for this day back on Mt. Rainier with both my kids. :).  Sorry I didn’t get to see any of the RMI office staff when I was at Basecamp.  Maybe next time.
