The Four Day Summit Climb August 21 - 24 led by RMI Guides Jake Beren and Geoff Schellens reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams reported clear skies with moderate to strong winds.  They spent a short amount of time on top before starting their descent from the crater rim just after 8 a.m.  The teams will return to Camp Muir and then continue their descent to Paradise.

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

Congratulations to today’s teams!
