Elevation: 12,600'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Dave Hahn was unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  At 7:20 a.m. the team was descending Disappointment Cleaver en route to Camp Muir; they will be back in Ashford later today.

Bottle neck of climbers above the DC caused a major hours long delay. Unfortunately temps were warming up quickly and there was still a lot of mountain to climb.

Too bad.  Would like to know what prevented the team from summiting.
