Mt. Rainier: Four Day Climb Teams On Summit with Light Breeze & Clear Skies

RMI Four Day Climb teams reached the summit of Mt. Rainier around 6 am PT today.  The climb took slightly longer than it has been due to many climbers on the route this morning. RMI Guides Pete Van Deventer & Joe Hoch reported great conditions with clear skies, light breeze and nice cool temperatures.  The teams were able to spend about an hour on the summit enjoying the views and taking photos.  They began their descent from the crater rim shortly after 7 am.  Once back at Camp Muir the teams will take a short break and repack their gear for the final 4.5 mile hike down to Paradise.

Congratulations to today's climbers!

Joe, Dan and Seth - You three were amazing guides, very compassionate and set achievable expectations. You stuck to your words and engaged with everyone and made this a memorable and successful climb. I had Fun and you made feel like i was Doing a regular training hike up Mt Si or Mailbox Peak beyond DC.
Thanks again!
