Four Day Summit Climb

Mt. Rainier: August 16th Summit!

With the freezing level at 13,500’, the Mount Rainier summit climb teams reached the top just after 6:00 a.m.  RMI Guide Ben Liken reported light winds and sunny with a cloud deck below Camp Muir. They spent over an hour on the summit taking in the views and crossing through the crater to Columbia Crest, the highest point in Washington.  By 7:45 a.m. both teams had crested back over the crater rim and began their descent to Camp Muir.

Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!

That was the strongest experience of my life. I was overflown by emotions of so many kinds. Special and the hugest THANK YOU go to Brent, Ben, and Pepper - our guides who kept planting confidence and motivation in the team along all of these 4 days. It’s inspiring and uplifting to work with so passionate and professional people, I took quite a few learnings from you guys back to my normal life. Another thank you goes to the whole team – it’s amazing to experience how completely strangers become a tag team and overcome difficulties with the right leadership.

Just a note to express a heartfelt “THANK YOU!” to our awesome guides: Ben, Brent and Pepper.  What an amazing climb!  Ben, Brent, Pepper, you were so dedicated, patient and professional throughout our experience, I have no words to express how much I learned and how much I admire you.

Thank you so much!
Christian.
