Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: September 3rd - Teams Turned Around at 12, 300’

The Four Day Summit Climbs August 31 - 3 September were unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  RMI Guides Brent Okita & Zeb Blais reported poor visibility and increased winds and precipitation as the teams reached the top of Disappointment Cleaver (12,300’).  The teams made the decision to turn around at that point and return to Camp Muir.  The teams were able to relax at Camp Muir before starting their descent to Paradise.  We look forward to meeting the groups at Rainier BaseCamp later this morning.

Turn around point very appropriate…Disappointment Ridge!
I know it is disappointing to not be able to attain your ultimate goal, but don’t discount the level of accomplishment you did achieve!
Congratulations to the team for all your dedication to the endeavor, and most especially to you Doug. You have pursued your dream and made us all exceedingly proud.  Luv U and anxious to see you and hear all about it!
