Elevation: 14,410'

The Mt. Rainier Four Day Summit Climbs led by Dan Windham and Shaun Sears reached the summit this morning in bluebird conditions.  The cloud layer was at 9,000’ and the summit temperature was 25 degrees with light winds.  What a spectacular day on the upper mountain!

Walter Hailes is leading the Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise.  They start out on the mountain today and will spend the next five days learning mountaineering skills and will conclude their week with a summit attempt.




Can’t wait to hear the stories and see the photos.  What a great accomplishment!!  Best regards, Clay

Ryan, I am so glad to hear this. No doubt you will never forget that moment, I am sure it was a spectacular culmination of months of training and planning by you and your climbing companions.
