The Four Day Summit Climb September 2 - 5 reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  RMI Guides Brent Okita and Leon Davis and their teams were approaching the crater rim just after 7:00 a.m.  The teams reported a beautiful day with warm temperatures, clear skies and no winds.  They will spend some time on top enjoying the views before starting their descent to Camp Muir.  After a short stop at Muir they will continue down to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams!

To my guides, Leon, Nick, Cody & the whole RMI staff. Thank you for all your coaching and encouragement in making the summit possable! The RMI organization is 1st rate and made my 50th birthday wish come true with my summit on Sept 5th.  A big thanks to all of you, Ed
