The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Billy Nugent along with the Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise led by Zeb Blais reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams reported clear skies with cold temperatures on the summit.  Both teams began their descent from the crater rim around 7:40 am.  The teams will return to Camp Muir for a short break before continuing down to Paradise.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons led by Solveig Waterfall checked in this morning from Glacier Basin.  They will be descend from Glacier Basin back to the trail head and return to Rainier BaseCamp later today.

We look forward to seeing all of the teams back in Ashford later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb Teams!
