The Four Day Summit Climb July 10 - 13 led by RMI Guides Andres Marin and Geoff Schellens reached the summit of Mt. Rainier.  The teams reported clear skies, light winds and beautiful day.  Both teams began their descent from the crater rim shortly after 7 am PT.  They will return to Camp Muir for a brief stop before continuing to Paradise later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams!

Way to go Andy & Chuck!  You guys rock!  Take it easy on the way down and we’ll see you soon!

Klein you crazy lunatic!  What a great day for you!  Congrats to everyone!  I am beginning my ascent of Lawe St. hill at 10:15 am today.  Hope to summit by 10:18 and return at 10:20.  Need two minutes at the top to snap a pic!  Get back down safely and by your wife a diamond!  (Or at least a pie on the way home). 
Love, Laura

Congrats to all for the acheivement. Truly miraculous accomplishment, .... putting up with Andy Klein for 4 days. Oh yeah, that summting thing is pretty cool too. Safe trip down to all and maybe now you guys could handle the extra 95 feet of Whitney.

Andy, didn’t see any trucks up there. Can’t beleive what the authorities are thinking leaving all of that area exposed to the destructive force of a fire. Unless your territory has a 14,000 ft ceiling I would expect an order soon. Happy trails.
