Both the Four and Five Day Mt. Rainier Summit Climb teams tagged the top!  RMI Guides Mike Haugen and Pete Van Deventer reported a sleet/snow mix and moderate winds.  At 8:45 a.m. they radioed basecamp to say they are beginning their descent.

Mike,Bridgette,Stoney,Peter,Lindsay, and all of the other RMI guides who risk their lives for us to fulfill our dreams to make it to the summit:

Lights will always guide you back home.ALWAYS.

You will always have a soccer mom thinking about you. Be safe my friends, be safe.
