Mt. Rainier: Dale, Hoch & Teams Reach Summit

The Four Day Climb May 28 - 31th led by RMI Guides Christina Dale and Joe Hoch led their teams to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. It's a beautiful day on the mountain and Joe reported the route was in good shape and would likely be improving with the warm temperatures and stable weather expected.  The teams enjoyed about an hour in the crater and began their descent from the crater rim just before 8 am today. The team will return to Camp Muir and then continue down to Paradise later this afternoon.

Congratulations to today's climbers!

Cannot say thank you enough to Joe, Camille and Cole for the entire experience. From minute 1, we knew we had a great group of guides, made only more clear the closer we got to the summit. It truly was an incredible experience and I felt in great hands the entire trip. Great group all around and hope our paths cross again on another mountain soon.

Posted by: Parker Knox on 7/28/2019 at 8:28 am

WOOHOO!! Congrats Knox’s Boys!!! Thank you to the wonderful guides who kept our guys safe and lead the way to a once (maybe twice) in a lifetime experience to conquer the great and beautiful peak together! Bode would be so proud!!! We are super excited to celebrate with you guys! Xoxox
