Elevation: 14,410'

Summit!  The Mt. Rainier Four Day Summit Climbs led by JJ Justman and Kel Rossiter stood on top just after 7:15 a.m.  Snow and sometimes rain was falling on the summit and the teams are currently in a mountain cloud cap.  Both teams recharged and refueled in the summit crater before starting their descent at 8:25. Although precipitation was falling, the guides reported pleasant climbing conditions and an excellent route.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!
