Today's RMI Four Day Climb with guides Steve Gately and Jackson Breen climbed to Ingraham Flats to enjoy the sunrise. The high heat, and current route conditions prevented the team from safely going any further onto the upper mountain. The team enjoyed the morning climb and are now descending to Paradise.

After enjoying a day of training at Ingraham Flats, 11,200ft, yesterday, the Five Day Climb June 29 - 3 July led by RMI Guides Steve Gately and Emma Lyddan put their training to good use. The teams climbed 4,500' from Camp Muir to the summit of Mt. Rainier this morning. Steve reported a pleasant day on the mountain with a bit of a breeze towards the summit. The teams began their descent from the crater rim just before 7:30 am en route to Camp Muir. Once back at camp they will have a short break to repack before continuing the remaining 4,500' to Paradise.
Congratulations to today's climbing teams!
