Today’s Four Day Summit Climb team led by RMI Guides Solveig Waterfall and Robby Young reached the top of Disappointment Cleaver. With the warm temperatures and smoke from wildfires burning in Western Washington, the team chose to make this this high point of the day. The team has departed Camp Muir and are on their descent to Paradise.

The Mt. Rainier Summit Climb teams, led by Elias de Andres Martos and Steve Gately, reached the summit this morning! On the ascent the winds had picked up but now on the descent, it is calm, sunny and warm.
Congratulations to today’s summit climbers!
Great adventure with both guides. Both were very professional and focused on everyone’s safety first. My first climb and would come climb with RMI again in a heart beat. Steve was our rope team’s guide - very knowledgeable and answered all of our many questions. Cousin Joe made it to the top with the help of Steve and others. Thanks again for the memorable adventure!

The Four Day Summit Climb August 27 - 30 led by RMI Guides Geoff Schellens and Mike King were unable to reach the summit of Mt. Rainier today. The teams turned around at 12,700’ due to high winds. The teams have returned safely to Camp Muir. They plan to start their descent to Paradise around 9:30 am PT.
Remember…. it is the trip that is most important…not the destination…per “Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: an inquiry into values” by Robert M. Pirsig”...from a ‘60s mama…...love and prayers for all…come home safely.

Glad you’re all safe. Even though you weren’t able to reach the summit, I hope the journey was an adventure!
