The Five Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Mike Walter and the Four Day – All Women’s Climb led by Melissa Arnot reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Today’s climb marked Melissa’s 100th summit of Mt. Rainier!
The teams began their descent from the crater rim just before 7 am.  Clear skies and beautiful sunshine.  They will return to Camp Muir for a short break and then continue to Paradise this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!
