Mt. Rainier: September 17th - Summit

Elevation: 14,410'

Despite the change in the weather our Four Day Summit Climb team led by Tyler Jones reached the crater rim at about 8:35am PST this morning. It was a touch and go summit for the team as winds were strong, temperatures were cold, and snow was beginning to fall. 

Our Five Day Summit Climb team led by Paul Edgren also attempted the summit today but due to deteriorating conditions aborted their attempt at 13,500’.  Both teams are descending back to Camp Muir.

Congratulations to both teams for your hard work on the mountain today!
