Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb August 7 - 10, 2012 led by RMI Guides Brent Okita and Andres Marin radioed from the Columbia Crest at 7:02 a.m.  The teams were enjoying clear skies, cool temperatures and a very light breeze on the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  They began their descent from the crater rim just before 8 am.  The teams will return to Camp Muir for a bit before continuing to Paradise this afternoon.  We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Congratulations to today’s teams!
