Every wanted to climb Mt. Rainier in Washington State? Well, I sure have. It’s almost embarrassing to think I haven’t climbed it, but I never have. Growing up, I would stare at The Mountain every day. I’ve hiked and skied all around it and even climbed to Camp Muir at 10,000 ft., but never summited.

Now is your chance to do something I’ve never done–all compliments of Outdoor Research and International Mountain Guides.
