The Five Day Summit Climb led by Robert Montague and the Four Day Summit Climb led by Jason Thompson reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Conditions on the summit were windy (40mph) and clear.  The teams are currently resting at Camp Muir before beginning their descent to Paradise; they will be back in Ashford this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!
