Elevation: 14,410'

The Five Day Summit Climb August 10 - 14 led by Solveig Waterfall and the Four Day Summit Climb August 11 - 14 led by Brent Okita reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams reported steady winds of 40 mph at the summit and a cloud cap that had descended on the mountain.  The teams began their descent from the crater rim around 7:15 am.  They will return to Camp Muir for a short break and then continue to Paradise this afternoon.  We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

Congratulations to today’s summit climb teams!
