Happy Independence Day!

The Four Day Summit Climb July 1 - 4 teams reached the summit of Mt. Rainier today led by RMI Guides Billy Nugent and Paul Edgren.  The teams enjoyed clear weather, light breeze and nice temperatures while they were on top this morning.  They began their descent from the crater rim shortly after 7 am.  The teams will return to Camp Muir to repack and then continue their descent to Paradise.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz led by Seth Waterfall also reached the summit of Mt. Rainier today.  After spending some time on top they began their descent to high camp where they will spend a final night on the mountain.

Congratulations to today’s summit climb teams!


  Way to go Terry!! So proud of you. See you next week in a warmer climate. Love you, Mom Mullin.
