Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Solveig Waterfall and the Five Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide JJ Justman reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Solveig and JJ both reported moderate, gusty winds; clear skies; and warm temperatures.  The teams began their descent back to Camp Muir around 8:30 am.  The Five Day Summit Climb will return to Camp Muir for their final night on the mountain while the Four Day Summit Climb will rest and refuel before descending to Paradise.  We look forward to greeting the Four Day Summit Climb team in Ashford later today.

Congratulations to today’s climbs!
