Congratulations to today’s climbers!
I am recommending this trip for my friends who love the outdoors like I do. I wouldn’t have wanted any other guide! Thank you Mike for the like time experience and making all of us feel safe the whole time. I am wishing I was still in the mountains! I’m surprised. Maybe not the boots though lol.

Today’s Five Day Mount Rainier Climb, led by RMI Guide Mike Uchal, reached the summit in cold, clear, and windy conditions. The views were spectacular and the team is currently on their descent back to Camp Muir. We look forward to congratulating them back at Rainier Basecamp later this afternoon.
Congrats to the whole team! I felt lucky to have great guides, and I’m coming back next year in July. July is my favorite month.

I was blown away - literally and figuratively - by this experience. Thank you everyone for your words of encouragement. Our entire team pulled together - all 9 climbers and 3 guides - to make this an event of a lifetime for everyone on the hill. I feel a special closeness to each and every one of them. Who wants to do it again?!? Sign me up!
