Mt. Rainier: July 12th Summit!

Elevation: 14,410'

Our teams on the Four Day Summit Climb reached the summit of Mt. Rainier via the Disappointment Cleaver Route early this morning.  With this bluebird weather we have on the mountain, the teams were on their descent by 7:20 a.m.  They will be back at Camp Muir by approximately 11:30 a.m. and will celebrate their feat on Rainier Basecamp later this afternoon.

Jake Beren and the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons was on top via the Emmons Glacier Route at 8:00 a.m.  His team will stay another night at Camp Schurman and descend off Mt. Rainier tomorrow.

Congratulations to today’s teams summitting on both routes!
