The Five Day Summit Climb June 17 - 21, 2017 led by RMI Guides Andy Bond, Joe Hoch and Nick Scott made their summit attempt today. High winds and firm climbing conditions prevented the team from going above 13,800’. The group has spent the last two nights at Camp Muir, they will return to pack their gear and continue their descent to Paradise.
We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.

RMI Guide Andy Bond led the Five Day Summit Climb Team June 8-12 to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. It is a beautiful day on the mountain with winds 10-15 mph and cold temperatures. The cloud deck below is at approximately 8,000’ so the team enjoyed great views from the summit. After spending two nights at Camp Muir they will return to camp and re-pack gear before continuing their descent to Paradise. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp this afternoon.
Congratulations to today’s Five Day Summit Climb Team!
