RMI Guide Dominic Cifelli led the Paradise Seminar team through training and to the top of Mt. Rainier this week! Various mountaineering skills were taught in order to arm these mountaineers with bigger mountains goals as well as feeling more comfortable in their climbing abilities.
The team is currently on their descent from the Mt. Rainier summit and will finish their program with a celebration back in Ashford.

Today they put their training to work and were rewarded with 100% of the team reaching the top. They will spend tonight back at camp and walk out to the trail head tomorrow, concluding their program.
Nice work team!

RMI Guide Mike Haugen reported sunshine, great weather and a light 5 mph breeze as his team was on the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. The Four Day Climb July 25 - 28, 2021 led by Mike Haugen and Alex Halliday were descending from the crater rim at 7 am.
Congratulations to today's climbers!
Looks like it was one of the best weather days possible. One of the best ever photos too from the summit.
I have a cousin who lives in Kent. Have never visited. Too old to climb but would enjoy visiting Paradise for the exhilarating views. So far have been traveling there vicariously, a regular visitor to the webcam site. Amazing snowfall !!
Congrats on your success to the top. J.B.

Great work team!!! Even though I had to make the tough decision to drop out yesterday, for both the sake of myself and the team, I feel having the opportunity of getting to know you and our shared experience greatly overshadows this fact. I wish all of you the best today and for the rest of time. You have earned an evening good food and drink this evening back in a place which is warmer, greener and with an enjoyably thick atmosphere.
