The Kautz Team, led by Mike Haft, are tucked in comfortably at their first camp. They’ll move up to about 10,000ft near Camp Hazard tomorrow. They’ve got their eyes set on Thursday as their summit day.
The Emmons Team, led by Dallas Glass, unfortunately had their summit window close on them this morning. The team did well, but a cloud cap descended on them just short of the summit, severely limiting their visibility, forcing them to turn around. They’re all back at Camp Schurman (9500ft.) now looking forward to their next climb!
On Liberty Ridge are IMG Guides Austin Shannon and Jonathan Schrock. They checked in this afternoon from St. Elmo’s Pass en route to the their camp on Lower Curtis Ridge (7000ft). Tomorrow they’ll move up to Thumb Rock (10,800ft.)
On the DC, Max Lurie and his team are at the Ingraham Flats (11,000ft) ready to take advantage of what Mt. Rainier gives them tomorrow morning.
A lot of chatter on the radio today, but that’s normal for this time of year!
