North Cascades: Ben Ammon and Team Wait out the Rain

Friday, August 23, 2019 7:11 PM PT

The rains came shortly after we finished our breakfast this morning, and refused to let up until 3 o’clock this afternoon. We spent the majority of the day passing the time in our tents before finally getting out for a little training this evening. The views cleared in time for us to enjoy them while eating dinner, and we’re all ready to head for the summit tomorrow!

North Cascades: Ammon & Team Train in Preparation for Their Summit Bid

We had some nice cloud cover that kept our walk to camp nice and cool. Once we arrived the clouds cleared to reveal awesome views of the North Cascades and of our Mt. Shuksan climbing route up the Sulphide Glacier. We are training to prepare for our summit attempt tomorrow.

I am back from four incredible days in the North Cascades. I was fortunate enough to a day of training at Mount Erie, then three days on a successful ascent of the Fisher Chimneys on Mt. Shuksan with one guest. Here are some photos of the experience.

North Cascades: Poor Weather Prevents Summit for Sahale Mountain Team

Yesterday our team made a strong summit attempt of Sahale Mountain in poor conditions. We reached 8,100’ on the Quien Sabe Glacier following a morning of low visibility as well as increasing rain and wind. With a deteriorating weather forecast we decided not to cross a tricky bergschrund, which would have put us in a difficult place considering the soggy snow conditions. We returned to camp wet, but in high spirits knowing we gave it our best go. The entire team did an excellent job and are looking forward to sunny summits in the future!

North Cascades: Alpine Classic Thwarted by Rain on Mt. Shuskan

Sahale Peak: Wittmier & Team Dodge Rain and Learn Skills

Our team woke up just after 7am to dense fog and intermittent rain. This group is positive and experienced in the back country, so it was no problem. The skies still have not cleared up, but we were able to cover the topics of technical gear, walking and advanced scrambling all while staying relatively dry. Not wanting to get the team too wet, we took shelter in our tents after breakfast, waiting for a break in the weather. We are now back in camp, relaxing outside as the sun is just starting to poke through. It is warm and any wet items have dried out by now. The team is looking forward to climbing tomorrow and we will check in, hopefully from the top!

North Cascades: Walter & Team Summit Mt. Baker

The RMI Alpine Classic team has reached the summit of their first objective- the North Ridge of Mt. Baker! Route conditions and the weather were excellent. The team was approximately 14 hours round trip from high camp, summit, and back to high camp. The team is now resting at a hotel getting ready for their next peak, Mt. Shuksan via the Fisher Chimneys Route.
