Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb July 9 - 12 led by Seth Waterfall and the Expedition Skills Seminar – Paradise July 7 - 12 led by Leon Davis reached the summit of Mt. Rainier at 6:30 a.m. PT.  The teams reported 10-15 mph winds, temperatures in the mid-teens, light snow and visibility of about 200 yards.

Both teams started their descent from the crater rim shortly before 8 a.m.  They will return to Camp Muir for short break to rest and re-pack before continuing down to Paradise this afternoon.

We look forward to seeing the teams at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulation to today’s climbing teams!


Herbie….......Stay awesome. Remember, there is no tomorrow!
