The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Mike Walter and Caleb Laude reached 12,500’ on Mt. Rainier this morning. The team spent some time watching the sunrise through the smoky haze at Ingraham Flats before heading back to Camp Muir.
Congratulations to today’s team!
Logan - I was thinking of you as I watched the colorful sunrise from sea level this morning. Looks like it was beautiful at 12,500’! Hawken says he’s proud of you for getting as high as Little Tahoma. Love you! ~ Susie

RMI Guides Tyler Jones and Mike King led their Four Day Summit Climb August 21 - 24 to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. The cloud deck remains below Camp Muir so the team was able to enjoy clear skies during their climb and from the summit crater before starting their descent. Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb teams!
Thanks to all the guides for their hard work over the last few days to re-establish a route above the top of Disappointment Cleaver!
Excellent! Looking forward to hearing all about it—way to go! Love you : )
