The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Pete Van Deventer reached the top of Cathedral Gap last night before having to turn back due to high winds of about 60 mph.  The team is safely back at Camp Muir. They will wait for a bit of a break in the weather before starting their descent. We expect the team back at Rainier Basecamp in the early afternoon.
