The Four Day Summit Climb Teams Led by RMI Guides Tyler Jones and Geoff Schellens reached Ingraham Flats on Mt. Rainier today, but due to poor visibility and bad weather they were forced to turn abort their summit attempt.  The team returned to Camp Muir and have started their descent back to Paradise and will arrive at Ashford BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s team.


I can’t imagine the disappointment but am glad you are all safe.  Can’t wait to see the pictures and hear the stories.
