The Four Day Summit Climbs led by RMI Guides Brent Okita & Leon Davis reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning at 6:35AM. They reported windy conditions upon approaching the crater rim and a chilly morning but overall good climbing conditions. After enjoying the views from the summit the teams will begin their descent to Camp Muir and then continue to Paradise. We look forward to seeing them in Ashford later today.
