Elevation: 14,410'

Today’s Four Day Summit Climbs led by RMI Guides Brent Okita & Billy Nugent reached the summit crater of Mt. Rainier just before 7 am PT.  Brent reported clear skies, a windless and gorgeous day.  The smoke from the Eastern Washington fires seems to have cleared and the cloud deck is below Paradise at about 5,000’.

The teams will return to Camp Muir in the late morning and then continue their descent to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing the teams at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb teams!



What a birthday present! I’m so proud and happy.
