Mt. Rainier: Teams Turn due to Wind and Precipitation

The Four-Day climb led by Pete Van Deventer and Alex Halliday turned around at 12,300’ this morning. The teams were facing 45 mph gusts as a wet cloud cap descended on them. They reported that the weather at Camp Muir was far more favorable with a light breeze to welcome them.

The teams are on their descent back to Basecamp, with warm showers and good food in their sights.

Today and where is it on the route? 

Bummer about the wind but congrats on getting that high!

Kautz Seminar: Weather deters climb from Summit, Turn at 12,200’

RMI Guide Alex Halliday called from Cmap this afternoon. The team turned at 12,200', at the top of the Ice Chute, due to deteriorating weather. He reported cloudy condition, some snow but an overall nice day of climbing. Alex mentioned that despite the team turning, that everyone was stoked after their ascent of the Ice Chute.

Their plan is to walk back to Paradise tomorrow and retun to Basecamp in the early afternoon.

@Dilip my understanding is it is like early spring conditions and the avy conditions are risky.

Definitely a bit upsetting to see so many teams not make summit
