The RMI Four Day Summit Climbs led by RMI Guides Jake Beren and Zeb Blais reached the top of Mt. Rainier early this morning.  At 7:15 the teams were descending Disappointment Cleaver en route back to Camp Muir.  The teams are doing well and enjoying the blue skies and calm weather.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons led by RMI Guide Walter Hailes reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning via the Emmons Glacier route.  The team has descended to Camp Schurman where they will spend the night before returning to Ashford tomorrow.

Congratulations to Today’s Teams!

38 yrs ago- 2 weeks shy of the day, I can remember… the stars at night while at Muir, the sunrise off the slope, going over the cleaver, and the top. The past few days - you covered my footprints and I can remember what you felt. Thanks for taking me back Jason.
