Elevation: 14,410'

RMI Guides Shaun Sears and Billy Nugent led their Four Day Summit Climb July 30 - 2 August, 2012 to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams reported nice climbing conditions and clear skies with a cloud deck below them at around 8,000’.  They were able to spend some time on the summit before beginning their descent at 8:30 a.m.

We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons reached the summit of Mt. Rainier today led by RMI Guide Tyler Reid.  The team spent two days training in Ashford and Paradise before driving to the White River Trail head and beginning their climb.  They will descend to their camp and spend one final night on the mountain. 

Congratulations to today’s teams!
