Our Four Day Summit Climb Teams led by RMI Guides Brent Okita and Solveig Waterfall reached the summit of Mt. Rainier at 6:45am this morning.  The teams reported 35 mph winds, and good route conditions.  They will spend some time on the summit before starting their descent back to Camp Muir.

Congratulations to today’s teams!



Congrats to all my fellow climbers who made it the summit.  I enjoyed meeting you all and climbing with you.  Also a big thanks to Brent, Sean and Nick for their guidance and professionalism.  All the best to you and can’t wait to see the pictures!!

Was a great time climbing with you all. A special shout out to my rope team members Harry, Kim, and guide Sean on getting to the top. This was an amazing time with a first class organization. Rick King (yea, one of the Wisconsin King brothers).
