Mt. Rainier: September 9th Update

Elevation: 11,400'

The Mount Rainier Summit Climb led by Pete Van Deventer and Casey Grom were unable to make a summit attempt due to continual lightning last night.  The teams did venture over to Ingraham Flats this morning and are currently experiencing sunshine with the cloud deck between 7,000’ - 8,000’ feet.  After they spend some time on the upper mountain, the teams will descend back to Camp Muir and onto Paradise.
