Our teams on Rainier are at their camps and getting as much rest as possible.
Our Emmons Team made it to Camp Schurman (9500ft.) in good form this afternoon and after a rice noodle stir fry dinner they hit the hay pretty early to get some sleep before their alpine start tomorrow morning. If all goes as planned they’ll hit the summit around daybreak tomorrow. Hopefully the weather cooperates with the plan!
On the other side of the mountain our Disappointment Cleaver, or more appropriately our Ingraham Direct team, pulled into Camp Muir (10,000ft.) around 4pm today. A nice day on the Muir snowfield was followed by some burritos, hot drinks and some George Dunn and Jason Edwards climbing stories. They’ll wake-up to some pancakes and bacon then head up to The Flats (11,000ft.) after some training.
Both teams can be followed on our Spot Adventures page
All is well on Mt. Rainier!
