The Four Day Summit Climb Team led by Casey Grom and the Five Day Summit Climb Team led by Zeb Blais reached the summit of Mt. Rainier at 8:00 am PT.  The teams reported clear skies and good climbing conditions with some chilly temperatures.  They were able to enjoy some time on top today and began their descent around 9:20 am.  The teams will return to Camp Muir for a short break before continuing down to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb Teams!
