Mt. Rainier: July 24th Climb Update

The American Lung Association Climb for Clean Air team attempted their Mt. Rainier summit bid this morning. With an overcrowded route and standstill foot traffic, which would have made continuing on unsafe due to the time of day, the guides turned at 12,500'.  The team is at Camp Muir and will begin their descent around 10:00 a.m.

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!
