The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Mike Walter reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  RMI Guide Brent Okita also led his team on the Expedition Skills Seminar - Paradise to the summit.  The teams reported clear skies and a beautiful day. 

Both teams will descend to Camp Muir and then continue down to Paradise later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams!
