Elevation: 12,700'

Thunder, lightning and white-out conditions kept the Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Paul Edgren from reaching the summit of Mt. Rainier today.  The team was able to reach an elevation of 12,700’ before making a decision to turn around and head for better conditions lower on the mountain.

RMI Guide Eric Frank and the Five Day Summit Climb Team will spend the day at Camp Muir acclimatizing before making their summit attempt tonight.
