Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climbs August 13 - 16, 2013 led by RMI Guides BIlly Nugent and Lindsay Mann reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams delayed their start from Camp Muir due to high winds but were fortunate that the winds decreased enough to allow them to climb.

They began their descent from the crater rim shortly after 9 am PT.  The teams will return to Camp Muir for a short break before continuing down to Paradise.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz enjoyed of week of training on Mt. Rainier.  They spent their final night on the mountain last night.  This morning they broke camp and started down to Paradise. 

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!  We look forward to seeing all teams at Ashford BaseCamp this afternoon.
