Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Adam Knoff and Rob Montague reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The team spent about an hour on the summit before starting their descent back to Camp Muir.  While on the summit, the team experienced a dense cloud cap, decreasing visibility to about 100ft.  Summit winds were 20-30 mph and the temperature is warm.

We look forward to seeing the teams at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb Teams!



What an accomplishment!  Great stuff.  You make us proud!

Congratulations Markus!!!  On the way down, be on the lookout for any angry birds, even the ones that look only slightly irritated.
