Mt. Rainier: September 23rd Summit!

Categories: *Expedition Dispatches *Mount Rainier
Elevation: 14,410'

RMI Guide Eric Frank called in from the crater rim of Mt. Rainier at 7:30 a.m.  The Five Day Summit Climb September 19 - 23 was just approaching the summit.  They reported cold temperatures with light winds and an overall beautiful day.  RMI Guide Geoff Schellens led the Four Day Summit Climb September 20 - 23 to the summit also.  The teams spent just over an hour on the summit before starting their descent.  They will return to Camp Muir to re-pack their gear before continuing down to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing both teams at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!
