Climb Mount Rainier | July 26-29

Interested in a mountaineering adventure? If so, this course is for you! People come from all over the world to experience the crown jewel of the Cascade Mountain Range. Mt. Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous United States, and climbing it requires teamwork, perseverance, and appropriate weather.

With its icy blue crevasses, wind-sculpted snow structures, and ancient flowing glaciers, this course will take you into the seldomly-traveled terrain of the highest point in the Pacific Northwest as you get the opportunity to climb Mount Rainier. Travel along the icy glacier on rope teams, with our experienced instructors leading the charge. You’ll be introduced to mountaineering tools like ice axes and crampons that are essential to the journey. Experience the spiritual benefits of physically and mentally challenging yourself in God’s creation and see how God uses the wilderness and mountains to speak. Join us for this classic Pacific Northwest mountaineering adventure!
