Mt. Rainier: Four & Five Day Summit Climbs Reach Summit

Posted by: Mark Falender, JJ Justman | June 18, 2014
Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by JJ Justman was approaching Mt. Rainier’s crater rim at 6:50 am along with the Five Day Summit Climb led by Mark Falendar.  JJ reported clear skies above and light wind.  The teams will return to Camp Muir and then continue their descent to Paradise.

The Expedition Skills Seminar – Kautz climbed through the Kautz ice chute this morning.  Their team made good work of the route and they were going to enjoy a short break off Wapowety Cleaver as this will be their high point for the trip.  The team will return to Ashford later today.

We look forward to seeing the teams back at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s Four and Five Day Summit Climb teams!
