The Four Day Summit Climb May 23 - 26, 2014 was forced to turn around at the top of Disappointment Cleaver today due to poor weather.  RMI Guides Eric Frank and Pablo Puruncajas made the call to start the descent.  The team will return to Camp Muir and then start their descent to Paradise later this morning.  We look forward to seeing everyone at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.


Be safe and finish strong. You showed courage, strength, and good judgement!
