The Four Day Summit Climb August 10 - 13 was unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier today. Poor weather delayed the team from leaving Camp Muir this morning. Unable to make their alpine start, the team did opt to ascend to Ingraham Flats which will be their high point today. RMI Guide Robby Young reported that the weather had improved and they were above the clouds as the reached 12,000’. The team will return to Camp Muir and descend to Paradise today.
So sad for you all that you couldn’t make it to the summit due to weather… Anthony, You have trained so hard for this and I am so proud of you!!

The June 3-6 Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Adam Knoff, Gloria Roe and Lydia Johnson reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. Adam reported cold and windy conditions but overall good climbing. The team enjoyed some time on top before starting their return to Camp Muir. We look forward to seeing them at Rainier BaseCamp later today.
Congratulations to today’s Summit Climb Team!
Adam, Gloria and Lydia: Thank you for a great climb and a wonderful life experience. You taught us all so much! The camaraderie of the group was fun. Sophie and I enjoyed the deep breaths, rest stepping and the dark ascent into the wonderland!
