The Four Day Summit Climbs for August 19 - 22, 2013 reached the summit of Mt. Rainier today.  RMI Guides Jake Beren and Geoff Schellens led the teams.  Jake reported light winds from the Northwest with winds from the East earlier in the climb.  Temperatures were estimated in the low 20s.  The teams began their descent from the crater rim just after 7:30 am.  They will return to Camp Muir for a short break and then continue to Paradise later this afternoon.

We look forward to greeting the teams at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s summit climb teams!
