The Five Day Climb June 18 - 22 led by RMI Guides Brent Okita and Bryan Mazaika enjoyed the sunrise at Ingraham Flats and Muir Peak. Weather this morning was calm and sunny with a few small wind gusts. The teams were unable to climb due to route conditions. All climbers descended from Camp Muir just after 8 am en route to Paradise. They will return to Rainier BaseCamp in the early afternoon.
@Dilip my understanding is it is like early spring conditions and the avy conditions are risky.
