The RMI Four- and Five-Day Mount Rainier summit climbs reached the summit this morning by 7:30 a.m.  The weather was surprisingly cold, moderate winds and a cloud deck at 8,000’.  At 8:35 a.m. the teams began their descent from the crater rim and will make their way to Camp Muir, Paradise and then their celebration awaits at Rainier Basecamp.

Go Grandpa Rathburn!  Amanda, Emily and Sue are watching your progress.  We’re all very proud of you.  I hope I can make that climb when I’m 75.
