It’s been a busy few days on Mt. Rainier! Let’s start with our Women’s climb, led by Anna Hicks. They summited yesterday morning and made their way down to Paradise in the afternoon. Passing them on the Muir Snowfield was our uphill DC team lead by Keith Rumburg. A little to the east of the Muir Snowfield at 81ooft is Dan Reithmuller and Nickle Wood who are leading our 6-day Glacier Skills Seminar, currently on day 3. Up at Camp Muir is Leanne Sebren who has been hard at work keeping Camp Muir & the Ingraham Flats in order and dialed into our Covid-19 protocols. And up on the route is Nate Sievert who is wrapping up a three day stretch of route work & other needed chores at Camp Muir.
All in all we had 12 guides on the mountain yesterday – all working hard and more importantly, working together.
