RMI Teams reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  RMI Guide Brent Okita led the Four Day Summit Climb and Eric Frank led the Five Day Summit Climb team.  The teams began their descent from the crater rim at 7 am and reported light winds and a bit of a cloud cap.  The teams will return to Camp Muir and then continue down to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing them back at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb Teams!
