Elevation: Summit

Our Four and Five Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides Dan Windham and Casey Grom reached the summit of Mt. Rainier today. They reported beautiful skies, but the weather was cold and a bit breezy.  Both teams are en route to Camp Muir and we expect them back at Ashford Basecamp later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams!

Nice work Matty and Kevin. I have notified Ashford Basecamp to stock up on some extra baranski’s.
“Who’s that drunk guy?” “That’s Matt!” “No, the one next to him.” “Oh, thats Kevin”
