Mt. Rainier: Teams Forced to Turn Due to Weather

Posted by: Billy Nugent, Garrett Stevens | May 25, 2014

Elevation: 13,000'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by Billy Nugent and the Five Day Summit Climb led by Garrett Stevens were forced to call 13,000’ their high point today.  The teams reported high winds, low visibility, and a descending cloud cap.  The teams will rest for a short time at Camp Muir before beginning their descent to Paradise.  We expect to see them back in Ashford early this afternoon.
