The Four Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides Adam Knoff and Solveig Waterfall reached the summit of Mt. Rainier early this morning. The teams reported warm temperatures with winds at about 15 mph.  They spent over an hour on the summit enjoying the views before beginning their descent back to Camp Muir.

After a week of Denali Prep training, Mike Haugen and the Expedition Skills Seminar – Kautz team also reached the summit of Mt. Rainier early this morning with 100% of their team. They have started their descent and will be back at Rainier Basecamp this afternoon.

The American Lung Association Climb for Clean Air is ascending to Camp Muir today with Win Whittaker as their lead guide.  He sent us a photo of the team’s climbing school from yesterday.  What beautiful weather the teams have been climbing in!
