Summit!  The Mt. Rainier Summit Climb was on top this morning in clear skies and light winds.  RMI Guide Zeb Blais reported the team began their descent from the crater rim at 7:40 a.m.

RMI Guide JJ Justman and his Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons also reached the summit this morning.  The team is still enjoying their time on the summit before they descend back to Camp Schurman for the night.  JJ sent a video last night and can be viewed below.

Congratulations to today’s teams!
