The Expeditions Skills Seminar - Muir has spent the week training at Camp Muir and this morning were able to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier.  Due to high winds throughout the night, they delayed their departure from Camp Muir.  The conditions were firm and the conditions cold but with clear skies and decreasing winds the team was able to spend some time on the summit.  All of the team members participating in this week’s program reached the summit along with RMI Guides Casey Grom, Elias de Andres Martos, Andy Hildebrand, Andrew Kiefer and Mike King.  The team will return to Camp Muir to spend their final night on the mountain.  Tomorrow they may do a bit of training before starting their descent to Paradise.

Congratulations to the Expedition Skills Seminar - Muir team members!
