Aconcagua: Hailes & Team Celebrate Their Success

Elevation: 9,000'

We successfully made it down from base camp back to Pampa de Lenas. Our celebration asado was an enormous success and went late into the night which may make our final walk to the road a little slower than normal but no one would have it any other way.

Elevation: 14,410'

Today, RMI Guides Brent Okita and JJ Justman led their teams to the summit of Mount Rainier!  With a looming forecast of a change in our glorious weather, the guides decided today was the day!  They crested the crater rim around 7:40 a.m. and spent an hour on the summit before a cloud cap started to form and they began their descent.  The team is currently on the last stretch between Ingraham Flats (11,200’) and Camp Muir (10,000’) where they will celebrate and rest for the night.  The seminar has two more days to gain additional training before they end their week on Mount Rainier.

Congratulations to the teams!!!

The Expeditions Skills Seminar - Muir has spent the week training at Camp Muir and this morning were able to reach the summit of Mt.

Congratulations to the Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir team members!
