The Four Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides Zeb Blais and Jake Beren were unable to make a summit attempt of Mt. Rainier this morning due to weather conditions.  Jake reported steady winds of 50 mph overnight with gusts to 70 mph.  As of 7:30 am conditions had improved slightly with decreased winds and partial clearing.  Snow accumulation at Muir was estimated at 6-10 inches.

The teams will depart Camp Muir around 9:15 en route to Paradise and then continue down to Rainier BaseCamp in Ashford.
