Elevation: 14,410'

RMI Guide Brent Okita radioed from the summit of Mt. Rainier, Columbia Crest, at 7 am PT with the Four Day Summit Climb.  He reported winds around 30 mph, clear skies and not super cold, it’s a “pretty nice day”.  The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons led by Solveig Waterfall has also reached the summit.

The teams will enjoy some time on top today before starting their descent.  The Four Day Summit Climb will return to Camp Muir, repack and continue down to Paradise.  The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons will return to their high camp for a final night on the mountain.

Congratulations to today’s teams!
