Elevation: 10,080'

The Four Day Summit Climbs August 12 - 15, 2013 led by RMI Guides Eric Frank and Paul Edgren were unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  Strong winds and precipitation prevented the teams from climbing.  The teams checked in from Camp Muir shortly after 7 am where they were safe and warm in the Muir hut.  The teams will descend from Camp Muir to Paradise this morning.

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Kautz led by RMI Guide Elias de Andres Martos was unable to summit this morning also.  They will spend today training on the mountain.  Tomorrow they will descend to Paradise and complete their program.

We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp.
