Take the challenge—join us on Mt. Rainier!
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. You will experience the spiritual benefits of physically and mentally challenging yourself in God’s creation. You will see how God uses the wilderness and mountains to speak. Join us for this classic Pacific Northwest mountaineering adventure!
