Elevation: 14,410'

RMI Guides Casey Grom & Billy Nugent led the Four Day Summit Climb teams to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams were approaching the crater rim just after 7 a.m.  They reported clear skies, warm temperatures and very light winds.  Once they begin their descent they will return to Camp Muir and then continue down to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s summit climber teams!



Hey David, I am SO excited for you and still almost feel I am right there with you! Maybe I’ll have to do it myself one of these days. Congratulations to you and the whole team!
All my love,
Colleen XOX
