This past summer I summited Mount Rainier. I set a goal and I spent mounths preparing.
It was an amazing experience and I'm stoked to be able to share our journey to the top of Mount Rainier with you. This is a four part series of my Journey to the Top!
Mount Rainier is a unique mountain within the contiguous United States. No other mountain is as extensively glaciated or has as much prominence. The scale and character of Mt. Rainier is more akin to an Alaskan or Andean peak. The highest trailhead requires the climber to gain 9,000 feet of elevation to reach the summit, as much as from Everest ABC to its summit.
