Elevation: 12,700'

The Four Day Summit Climbs led by RMI Guide Brent Okita & Kel Rossiter were forced to turn this morning due to avalanche danger.  The teams reached 12,700’ on Mt. Rainier before turning around.

Brent radioed in at 6:44 am as the teams were taking a rest break at the top of Disappointment Cleaver in white out conditions.  They will continue to Camp Muir to repack and rest before continuing their descent to Paradise later this morning.
