Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb September 2 - 5 reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  RMI Guides Brent Okita and Leon Davis and their teams were approaching the crater rim just after 7:00 a.m.  The teams reported a beautiful day with warm temperatures, clear skies and no winds.  They will spend some time on top enjoying the views before starting their descent to Camp Muir.  After a short stop at Muir they will continue down to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams!
