Elevation: 14,410'

This morning the RMI summit climbs reached Washington’s highest point, Columbia Crest on Mt. Rainier!  The weather was great with some winds around 25 mph, a little chilly but really nice.  The Four Day Summit Climb left the crater rim to start their descent back to Camp Muir at 7:50 a.m.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbs!

Mt. Rainier and the Nisqually Glacier.



Congratulations to Mike and everyone else in this group. Can’t wait to see pictures. What an accomplishment.

Amazing! You were on a crater rim this morning? Sounds like a place your favorite interstellar rover would be : ) The picture looks so clear (and the mountain so big—you were really up there!?!?!).

Have a safe descent with your team. Enjoy the accomplishment. Can’t wait to see you. Love, K
