Our Mt. Rainier Summit Climb led by Billy Nugent and Solveig Waterfall reached the crater rim at 6:59 a.m. this morning.  The teams reported clear and windy skies and very cold temperatures.  Billy and Solveig radioed at 8:15 a.m. that both teams started their descent back to Camp Muir.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!
