The Four Day Summit Climb Teams led by RMI Guides Casey Grom and Elias de Andres Martos reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Casey radioed that the team had a long hard day getting to the summit with several inches of new snow on the mountain requiring them to break trail.  The teams reached the crater rim around 8:30 am and was going to spend a short amount of time on top before starting their descent.  They will return to Camp Muir for a short break before continuing down to Paradise.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb Teams!



Congratulations to all and well done with all that heavy snow!
