Mt. Rainier is officially open.
Our first 3.5 day summit climb left for Paradise this morning and after a warm day on the snowfield they are pulling into Camp Muir right now (~4pm). It’s a beautiful day here in the Pacific Northwest – a perfect start to the season.
We plan on sending a couple guides up early tomorrow to do some work on the route and if all goes as planned these guys will get a shot at the summit on Thursday morning.
A great start to the season!
