Radio transmissions and SAT phone calls are coming in from all over the place this morning…
Phil Ershler chimed in from the summit of Mt. Rainier early this morning.
Eben Reckord and our Glacier Skills Seminar radioed from 7000ft on the Paradise Glacier – all is well. They’ll move to their second camp today and work on some skill sessions.
Jess Culver, who is assisting with the Camp Patriot Climb reports that all is well at Camp Muir. They’ll do some training today and get ready to climb tonight.
On the other side of the mountain, Max Bunce, and his Emmons team are getting things rolling this morning. After a nice breakfast at the Alpine Inn, they’ll start their climb to Camp 1 on the Inter Glacier.
And due south on Mt. Adams, IMG Guides Dan Zokaites and Mike Haft report some less than ideal conditions, which is a nice way of saying it’s raining sideways. After a quick breakfast they’ll evaluate their options and make a decision on their day. All is well – just a little wet.
