Mt. Rainier: September 8th Teams Thwarted by Winds

Elevation: 12,700'

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guide Billy Nugent and RMI Guide Elias de Andres Martos reached 12,900’ before high winds forced them to turn around.  The teams were at Ingraham Flats around 7 am this morning en route to Camp Muir.  From there, they will refuel and prepare to descend back to Paradise.  We look forward to seeing them back in Ashford this afternoon.

Way to climb teams!
