Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb September 21 - 24 is our last Summit climb of the 2012 season.  This morning they reached the crater rim of Mt. Rainier just before 8:30 a.m.  RMI Guides Seth Waterfall and Leon Davis reported clear skies above 13,000’ with light winds.  The teams will spend a bit of time on top before starting their descent to Camp Muir.  After a short break to re-pack their gear and re-fuel, they will continue down to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing the teams this afternoon at Rainier BaseCamp.

Congratulation to today’s teams!



Belated Happy Birthday wishes!  What a great adventure!  We are so excited for you!  Can’t wait to hear the stories. 
Love Robin & Tim
