Mt. Rainier: Teams on the summit August 2nd!

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Leon Davis reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning at approximately 7:25 am.  Leon reported steady winds from the N/NW at 10-15 mph, cold temperatures and a cloud deck below at 10,000’.  The Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise led by Adam Knoff also reached the summit this morning. The teams spent approximately one hour on the summit before starting their descent.

Both teams will return to Camp Muir to repack their gear and take a short break before continuing down to Paradise this afternoon.  We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!
