Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 12,300'

Our Four Day Summit Climb teams failed to reach the summit this morning due to a team member falling ill and needing assistance. The teams reached 12,300’, the top of Disappointment Cleaver, before they needed to turn around. Everyone is now descending back to Camp Muir and we expect their arrival at Ashford Base Camp around 4:00pm.

My heartfelt thank you to everyone for taking such good care of my daughter.  A special thank you to Paul for his tremendous kindness and consistent updates.
