Elevation: 14,410'

Our Four Day Summit Climb teams led by Mike Walter and Elias de Andres Martos reached the summit of Mt. Rainier at about 8 o’clock this morning.  The teams had clear skies with a cloud deck at about 8,000’ and moderate winds.  They got to spend some time on the summit and are now making their way back to Camp Muir. 

Congratulations to today’s teams!

Also, Nana says “hi” to Nora.



Kelley, We have never known anyone to make this climb—you are amazing!  We can’t wait to see your pictures!  Love, Sue and Don
