Jeff Ward called in today from above the Beehive on Rainier to report good conditions early but as the team climbed higher on the mountain the snow conditions were less and less favorable. Safety first; summit second. They opted to return to Camp Muir where they’ll focus on crevasse rescue and navigation this afternoon.
After an afternoon of training they’ll spend their last night at Camp Muir before coming down in the morning to a comfortable pair of shoes and a well deserved shower!
All is well on Mt. Rainier!
