With a projected break in the forecast, a group of Alpine Ascents guides is headed up to Camp Muir today to breakdown and store the weather port, and put everything away for the winter. It includes lots of heavy lifting and moving gear at 10K feet, so having a group of 4-5 is great for efficiency. The guides will wrap everything up by tomorrow a.m. and we will put our Rainier season to rest!
Much thanks to everyone who followed along on the blog this season, and especially to all the climbers who joined us on an Alpine Ascents trip. You help make it possible for our guides to do what they love- taking climbers out in the mountains and helping them achieve their goals. Tune into our Cybercast page for updates on our international winter expeditions, including Aconcagua, Kilimanjaro, and Mt. Vinson. See you next spring!
