Elevation: 14,410'

RMI Guides Brent Okita & Paul Edgren led their Four Day Summit Climb teams to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Brent radioed from the summit shortly after 7 am as the teams were crossing the crater.  They reported cold temperatures with moderate winds and clear skies.  The teams began their descent from the crater rim around 7:40 am.  They will return to Camp Muir for a short break and then continue down to Paradise later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s climbers!
