Clouds rolling in from the west ahead of this next frontal system with the potential for some t-storms later on. Which brings me to our next topic... It's National Lightning Safety Week!
Lightning kills on average 47 people a year in the US. Here are some tips to help keep you from being a statistic:
>Check out the weather forecasts in your area, or your destination, and consider your timing. Be observant! If you hear thunder turn back and seek shelter or better terrain. If you're in the White Mountains, check our forecast at www.mountwashington.org/experience-the-weather/higher-summit-forecast.aspx
>When in the backcountry or mountains, avoid being near the peaks, ridges, and other high grounds. You want to avoid streamers
>Avoid trees as well, if struck they can cause streamers and or injure you from secondary effects like it falling.
> Avoid long conductors, essentially anything metal.
> If you can't, then get low! Assume the lightning position. Crouch down, feet on the ground together and hug your knees.

Morning! In Ga. our storms rolled through last evening.....y’all stay safe and dry. ☔️⚡️
We're having one right now, so it's on its way to you. Huge crashing thunder woke me half an hour ago (NJ). Enjoy, it was pretty wild for a little while there.
When i was out west climbing mt washburn in yellowstone. I got caught in a t storm . Very erie.
What’s the weather for this coming Saturday up there?
Thank you for the tips, especially the one about one's position if in a field. I did not know that one.
It's finally summer which means it's time to get outside on some real rock and we're offering Gym to Crag transition clinics to help you get out there. These clinics will focus on anchor building, rappelling, and lead belaying and are great for climbers who are looking to climb outside of the first time, or for anyone who wants to brush up on their skills. We'll be offering these clinics on the second Thursday of each month, so find a day that works for you and sign up now at the link below!

A few of the shop guys kickin it on the top of Mount Rainier during a "up and over" ascent of the Kautz Route (9,500' gain, AI 2-3, moderate snow) and down the Ingraham Direct on June 1. The boys reported unseasonably warm temps, climbed near perfect neve ice at 2:00am and arrived near the summit for sunrise. Not a bad day up and over the beast with the #mountaineerbandana in hand! @ Mount Rainier National Park ... See MoreSee Less
