The Four Day Summit Climb August 12 - 15 and the Five Day Summit Climb August 11 - 15 both reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  RMI Guides Leon Davis and Geoff Schellens reported they were in a cloud cap on the summit with low visibility and light winds from the South/Southwest.  The teams began their descent from the crater rim shortly after 7 am.  They will return to Camp Muir for a short break before continuing their descent to Paradise this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s climbers!
