Elevation: 12,500'

Due to winter like conditions on Mt. Rainier this morning both the Four Day Summit Climb Team led by Seth Waterfall and the Five Day Summit Climb Team Led by Gabriel Barral were forced to turn near Disappointment Cleaver.  The teams are safely back at Camp Muir and we expect a early afternoon return to Ashford Basecamp today.

What is meant by “...winter like conditions…” and why would that make you turn back?
