Elevation: 14,410'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Mike Walter and the Five Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Paul Edgren reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Mike and Paul reported moderate winds and cloudy conditions.  The teams were departing the summit around 7:30 a.m. and are returning to Camp Muir to refuel before continuing downhill to Paradise.  We’ll see them back in Ashford this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s teams!
