Mt. Rainier: July 22nd Summit!

Elevation: 14,410'

RMI Guide Seth Waterfall radioed in at 7:44 this morning reporting that both Four Day Summit Climb teams were on the summit of Mt. Rainier.  Seth reported high cirrus clouds, low valley fog, 35 mph SW winds, and good climbing conditions.  The teams spent around a bit of time on the summit before leaving the crater rim just after 8:00am.

They will descend to Camp Muir and then continue their descent to Paradise later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s summit climb teams!
