RMI Guide Billy Nugent led the Four Day Summit Climb August 3 - 6 to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning.  The teams reached the summit crater around 7:20 a.m. and reported light winds and good conditions.  The Five Day Summit Climb August 2 - 6 led by Gabriel Barral was also on top.  Both teams began their descent just after 8 a.m. 

The Expedition Skills Seminar - Emmons will be moving to their high camp (Camp Schurman 9,440’) today.  They will continue their training this afternoon and ready for their summit attempt tomorrow morning. 

Congratulations to today’s summit climb teams!
