Busy week on Mt. Rainier
Mark Allen & Co. summitted a couple days ago and are off the mountain safely. Our next Finger trip started today. For those of you with some climbing experience you should check this climb out! Small team (6 total) and on a non-standard route – pretty sweet experience on Mt. Rainier!
Our Kautz team, led by Justin Merle, is moving into position for a possible summit attempt tomorrow.
The Emmons team was shutdown by weather yesterday but all is well as they make their way off the mountain today.
Glacier Skills Seminar
Eben Reckord & Karl Rigrish are leading our 6.5 day Glacier Skills Seminar. They’ve spent the past few days on the lower Paradise Glacier training and will make the move to Camp Muir tomorrow for the climbing portion of the program. They’ll be joined by IMG Guides Austin Shannon and Chris Meder.
And Erica Engle will take our DC team from Camp Muir to the Ingraham Flats today. Weather permitting they’ll climb late tonight into the morning.
Lots of work to be done…
