Mt. Rainier: June 16th Update

Elevation: 13,500'

RMI Guides Win Whittaker and Dan Windham led the Four Day Summit Climb teams to 13,500’ this morning before deciding to turn around due to deteriorating weather conditions and increased winds.  The teams checked in from Ingraham Flats around 7:30 a.m. on their descent as the rain continued to fall.  They returned to Camp Muir to repack and hopefully dry out a bit.  At 10:00 a.m. they began their descent from Camp Muir to Paradise.

We look forward to seeing the groups at Rainier BaseCamp in a few hours.
