Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb of Mt. Rainier led by RMI Guides JJ Justman and Mike Soucy stood on top of Columbia Crest this morning.  JJ reported that the teams were in and out of a cloud cap all morning but enjoyed light winds and pleasant conditions on the summit.  The teams will descend to Camp Muir where they will pack up and refuel before making their way to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing them in Ashford this afternoon.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz led by RMI Guide Zeb Blais also reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  They enjoyed a light breeze while on the summit.  The team will descend back to high camp for the night and will return to Ashford tomorrow.

Congratulations to today’s climbers!
