It’s always a good day when one of our teams calls in from the summit of Mt. Rainier; today was no exception. Our Disappointment Cleaver Team battled the cold temps and reached the summit in good form this morning. They’ve made their way down the Muir Snowfield and are now looking forward to hot showers and cold beers! Taking their place on the mountain is our uphill DC Team led by Justin Merle. They’re eyeing Thursday as their summit day.
Our Emmons Team did some training this morning and pulled into Camp Schurman early this afternoon. IMG Guide Luke Reilly reports that they’re in position to take advantage of whatever Mt. Rainier gives them tomorrow morning. There’s only one way to know what that will be – wake up and take a look!
And on The Fuhrer Finger Route, Harry Hamlin reports that his team used today to do some training, if things look good tomorrow they’ll move up to their second camp. It’s a 5-day program so they have a little wiggle room.
All is well on Mt. Rainier!
