The Five Day Summit Climb led by RMI Zeb Blais and the Four Day Summit Climb led by Solveig Waterfall reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  At 7:03 am the teams began their descent from the crater rim.  Solveig reported a beautiful, calm and sunny day from the summit of Mt. Rainier.
Both teams will return to Camp Muir for a short break before continuing down to Paradise this afternoon.  We look forward to seeing everyone at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.

Congratulations to today’s summit climb teams!
