Despite a recent hiccup in the weather here in the Pacific Northwest, things continue to go pretty smoothly on Mt. Rainier. Right now we have three teams on the mountain.
Harry Hamlin and his team are at their first camp on the Fuhrer Finger route. They’re going to see what the recent snow has done to the south side of the mountain. Over on the north side of Rainier is Luke Reilly and his Emmons team. They’re parked at their camp for the night on the Inter Glacier. They’ll move up to Camp Schurman tomorrow. Our DC team is at The Flats ready to take a shot at the summit, if things look favorable in the morning.
The weather doesn’t look like it has quite stabilized just yet, so the teams on the mountain will do their best and continue to take what Mt. Rainier gives them.
