Mt. Baker: Mazaika & Team Summit with 100%!

Sunday, September 9, 2018 - 1:20 PM PT

RMI Guide Bryan Mazaika called from the summit of Mt. Baker this afternoon. The team attempted the climb a day early to take advantage of a forecasted lull in the rainy weather. The decision proved wise as the team was able to summit 100% in dry weather! They will make their way downhill to camp where they will pack up and exit the program a day early to beat the coming rain and snow.

Congratulations team!

Mt. Baker: Mazaika & Team on the Summit!

7:58 AM PT

Hi this is Bryan calling from the Mt. Baker Coleman-Demming climb. We went up and over the Roman Wall and the team is celebrating on the summit as we speak.  We have beautiful conditions, calm winds, sunny and reasonably clear.  We have great views of the North Cascades, Glacier Peak and Mt. Rainier from a distance.  We are enjoying our break up here and we will spend a little bit more time.  We have a solid effort to get back to our camp at Hog’s Back.  Everyone is doing great.  When we get back to camp we will pack up and eventually we will head out back to Glacier.  We will wrap of the trip with a celebration with pizza and beer.  IT’s been a solid effort by the team, we are super proud of everyone.  Thanks for following.

Mt. Shuksan: Elias & Team Summit Via the Fisher Chimneys Route

What a day!

From the full moon that illuminated our wake up, to the radiant sun that shone all day, we had an incredible climb up the Fisher Chimneys Route, to the Curtis Glacier, to the summit pyramid. Few attempt the entire route from Lake Ann, but determined climbers seemed to push this guide up the mountain, and the long feat, was executed with ease. We’re now crawling into our sleeping bags, after our camp dinner that tasted heavenly, since all we had all day was chocolates and bars…
The smoke from fires seems to be fading, and the ambiance from camp is rather idyllic.
We’ll hike out tomorrow with hopes of enjoying a hearty brunch in town.
Good evening from Lake Ann!

Mt. Baker: Grom & Team Summit Via the Easton Glacier

We are back at Sandy Camp, our high camp on the Easton Glacier. We got a break from the rain today, waking to clearing skies and a beautiful morning. Our team worked hard and did a great job, and everyone made it to the top! The views from the summit looking towards Shuksan and Mt. Rainier were spectacular. We plan to leave high camp at 2pm and will be in touch when we get back to town this afternoon or evening.
