Mt. Rainier Mountaineering - Ages 18+
Join Outward Bound on Mount Rainier. At 14,410’, Rainier is the most heavily glaciated peak in the contiguous United States, and one of the country’s most renowned mountaineering objectives. You’ll learn how to use an ice ax, travel on a rope team, climb steep snow, rescue a fallen climber from a crevasse, and achieve as a team. Long days and significant elevation gain make this one of the most physically demanding that Outward Bound offers. Each student must possess excellent fitness, self-care, and team ethic. Prior mountaineering experience is not required, though experienced climbers are welcome.
