Elevation: 11,800'

The Four Day Summit Climb Led by RMI Guides Dave Hahn and Paul Edgren reached 11,800’ feet today before encountering firm and icy conditions on the route which forced them to turn around.  Dave Hahn reported clear skies and beautiful weather.  The team is currently descending from Ingraham Flats and will be back at RMI Basecamp in the early afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams!
