Elevation: 11,200'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Tyler Reid and Garrett Stevens made the prudent decision to call 11,200’ the team’s high point after encountering firm, icy conditions.  The team is making its way across the Cowlitz Glacier towards Camp Muir.  Once back at Camp Muir, everyone will refuel, rest, and repack for the descent back to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing the team back in Ashford early this afternoon.

RMI Guides Tyler Reid, Sean Collon and a team of clients spent the last five days learning the art of Ski Mountaineering.  The team explored Mount Rainier’s incredible winter snowpack and accessible but challenging technical terrain. The team spent the days on the mountain learning and practicing a variety of ski specific technical skills. The trip culminated with an ascent to Camp Muir (10,060’) and the team will enjoy an exciting 5,000’ ski descent today.
