The Four Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides Brent Okita and Billy Nugent reached the summit of Mt. Rainier early this morning.  Brent reported a gorgeous day with clear skies and winds 25-30 mph on the summit but 15 - 20 mph throughout the climb. The teams began their descent from the crater rim around 7 am and will return to Cam Muir before continuing down to Paradise.

The Expeditions Skills Seminar - Kautz led by Jake Beren also reached the summit this morning.  At 8:30 am they began their descent and will return to their camp where they will spend another night on the mountain.

Congratulations to today’s climbers!
