Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer braved the winds to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  After a short rest on the summit, the team began their descent shortly before 8 am.  They will return to Camp Muir to refuel before descending to Paradise later today.  We look forward to their arrival in Ashford this afternoon.

Congratulations climbers!

RMI Guide Eric Frank and the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons continue to spend their days training.  Today the team moves from their camp on the Inter Glacier to Camp Schurman in preparation for their summit attempt.

The Four Day Summit Climb Teams led by RMI Guides Adam Knoff and Solveig Waterfall reached the Summit of Mt. Rainier today.  The teams reported clear weather with a cap on the summit, and the new route via Camp Comfort great to climb.  The teams spent some time on the summit and are now en route to Camp Muir.

Congratulations to today’s teams!
