RMI Guide Casey Grom radioed from the summit of Mt. Rainier at 7:33 am with his Four Day Summit Climb Team along with the Five Day Summit Climb led by Lindsay Fixmer.  The Four and Five Day Summit Climb teams reported great conditions on the mountains and a beautiful day with barely any winds.  The teams were going to start their descent just before 8 am and will return to Camp Muir and then continue to Paradise.
We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb teams!



Congratulations, John!  Very proud of the way set goals & focus to reach your goals.
Can’t wait to hear the details.  You have a BIG team cheering for you.
