The Four Day Summit Climb teams led by RMI Guides JJ Justman and Solveig Waterfall were unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier due to unstable snow conditions. The Teams turned at 11,654’ on Disappointment Cleaver and are now safely back at Camp Muir. They will start their descent and be back to Rainier Basecamp in the early afternoon.
Just spoke with a team member and learned of the incredible experience he had inspite of not making it to the summit. This grateful mom is thankful for the guides sound decision making! Congrats to all!

The Four Day Summit Climb led by RMI Guides Casey Grom and Solveig Waterfall reached the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning shortly after 7 am. Casey reported clear skies, light wind, and chilly—but not too cold—temperatures. The teams will spend some time on the summit before beginning their descent. We look forward to seeing them in Ashford this afternoon.
I just want to say thanks to everybody on the team. It was so cool to see my daughter Sarah so happy about her accomplishment! Thanks to you all! Hopefully we will meet again somewhere.

Jeff, we are sure the sights make all the training worthwhile. Hayden was sure she saw you on the mountain last night when we viewed it from the Wallmart Parking Lot and Indi recognized your green eyes in the photo.

Solveig- Not sure if I had provided to you a link of the video created following our climb. Not sure if you remember, I raised money for a local non-profit.
