Sad News on Mt Rainier.

June 2, 2014

Breaking news on Mt Rainier

This morning I was going to post a video introducing everyone to Ed & Pete and showing you all the mountain and the climb ahead…..unfortunately over the weekend there was a tragedy on the mountain, 6 climbers including two experienced guides fell 3300 ft to their deaths. It’s not known how they all fell but it looks like an ice shelf may have collapsed beneath them or they were swept off the mountain in an avalanche…..

We’re not sure how this will affect our climb which is less than 3 weeks away but rest assured that we will take every precaution to be as safe as we can possibly be and our guides are two of the best in the world with safety records beyond reproach, knowing their climbing philosophies they will turn us around at the first sign of danger, with their years of experience I’m positive that even if they were to feel that things were off in any way they would not hesitate to put our safety first and the summit second.

All our best Dave & Mike
