The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Mike Uchal and Five Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Paul Edgren reached the summit of Mt. Rainier after a 6 1/2 hour ascent.  Mike Uchal reports sunny, beautiful weather and a busy route. The teams are en route back to Camp Muir, and will be back at RMI Basecamp later today.

Congratulations to today’s teams!



That mountain looks soooo big from my easy chair on the patio where I lounge thinking about all of you, up on top.  I can only imagine the sense of accomplishment.  You guys are amazing!  Welcome back, and can’t wait to hear stories.

I am so excited that you all made it! Each of you has been constantly on my mind the last several days! I am envious, but so proud of what you all have accomplished! Welcome home when you get there! Your admirer, Mr. T

Way to go Team Milne! What a great experience.  So proud of you, Kate.  From the shores of NC to the top of Rainier in the same month.  Can’t wait to here all about it!  Mom and Dad
