The Four Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides Billy Nugent and Tyler Reid reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning just after 7 am.
Tyler reported a cloud deck below at around 8,000’ and a cloud layer above.  The teams were experiencing moderate to gusty winds and cold temperatures.  They will descend to Camp Muir and then continue to Paradise this afternoon.

We look forward to seeing everyone back at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Congratulations to today’s summit climb teams!
