Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb August 20 - 23 led by RMI Guides Dave Hahn and Jake Beren reached the top of Mt. Rainier today!  They experienced very high winds with a cloud cap on top of the mountain.  The teams began their descent from the crater rim a little after 9:00 a.m. PT.

RMI Guide Seth Waterfall and the Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons will continue training today.  Due to high winds and heavy rain last night the team will postpone their summit attempt until tomorrow morning. 

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb team!
