Our Five Day Summit Climb Teams led by RMI Guides Brent Okita and JJ Justman reached the Summit of Mt. Rainier today.  The team reported fair weather with winds of about 15mph and a cap on the top of the mountain.  The teams spent some time on the summit and are now on their way back to Camp Muir.

Congratulations Brent, JJ, and teams on the first summit of our 2013 Mt. Rainer climbing season!



Thanks again to JJ and Brent as well as all the other guides for a great climb! So glad to be a member of the first summit team of the season! You guys are truly amazing and I had a wonderful experience with RMI!
