The Four Day Summit Climb August 17 - 20 reached the summit of Mt. Rainier just after 7 am PT this morning.  RMI Guides Brent Okita and Paul Edgren led the teams.  Brent reported a gorgeous day with clear skies and light winds averaging 15 mph.  The teams will spend some time on the summit before beginning their descent to Camp Muir.  After a short rest, the teams will continue to Paradise later this afternoon.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons led by RMI Guide Eric Frank reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning shortly before 8 am PT.  The team will spend time enjoying the views and then return to their high camp for their final night on the mountain.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!
