RMI Guides Peter Whittaker and Dave Hahn led their teams to the Mt. Rainier summit this morning.  Both teams had left the summit by 8:30 a.m. and reported light winds and a very pleasant day on the mountain.

Jake Beren is currently leading the Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz on their summit bid.  He checked in at 8:15 a.m. from the Wapowety Cleaver on the Kautz Route and will radio us when he reaches the summit.
