Mt. Rainier: High Winds Keeps Teams from Reaching Summit

Today’s Four Day ALA Summit Climb was unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier due to high winds.  RMI Guides Win Whittaker and Solveig Waterfall made the tough decision to turn the team around at 13,700’ as winds continued to increase.  The team is descending to Camp Muir where they will repack their gear and continue down to Paradise.

Thank you to all the ALA Climbers for their hard work and dedication to the cause!

Mt. Rainier: Kautz Seminar Makes Their Summit Attempt

RMI Guide Solveig Waterfall and the Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz turned this morning at 12,400ft.  After several days of training they made their summit attempt this morning.  Unfortunately, climbing conditions were difficult due to deep snow and the team decided to turn around after a strong effort.  The team is descending the Kautz Ice Chute and will check in this evening.  They will continue some training before descending from the mountain tomorrow.

I experienced Everything on Rainier which I never have before on any mountain
Team spirit was So high
Leadership was Stellar and kind and Patient and helpful, absolutely, but especially talented and tenacious…

The Route was So Terminally Beautiful it was like a volcanic eruption of Emotion, your heart racing, thoughts swimming in stimulation… a virtual BASE JUMP into Euphoria

The guides resource reservoir was vast and the way they adapted to the challenges our team encountered along the way, Masterful… instinctively executing adaptation not uncertainty to emerging obstacles in varied forms while maintaining cohesion to Team, to route, to Goal and to True Success

This alone would have been Epic to be a part of… what Elevates this trip for Myself and my teammates beyond Epic is the Catalyst into Transformation we launched with the intensive training fused together by the “real Mountain” Kautz Expedition Challenge which demands Focus on practice of lessons which opens the window into the stratosphere of what is possible for EACH ONE of us to develop into as Mountaineers of the highest caliber!

This Team… held by This Mountain during This Moment has been evolved into an Eternal Artwork as our recollections and our stories will testify…

We have Successfully Summited our Destiny and now we enjoy the opportunity our ascension has created to continue beyond…

Mt. Rainier: Okita & Team Ready for Morning Summit Bid

Our acclimatization climb to Ingraham Flats went well today with beautiful weather. What a view of the mountain. Our guide training team went to the summit and prepped the route for us, so we should be in good shape for our climb tonight.
Let’s hope the wind and weather hold for us. I think it will.

Shout to Sheila from James here in Clearwater Beach Florida.  One of my favorite mountains seen many of times from a plane or on a clear day when I lived in Seattle.  Looking forward to pics and hearing about your adventure.
