50 YEARS OF CLIMBING
In honor of our 50th anniversary, we will be sharing stories of first climbs, from Joe Horiskey's first climb of Mt. Rainier where he carried a load of food to Camp Muir to barter for a cheaper guide fee, to Peter Whittaker's first climb of Rainier when he was 12 years old. We'll also be featuring first climbs from our guides and climbers.
Have a story that you want to share? Send your text along with 3 to 5 accompanying photos to [email protected].
Topics could include:
- Best part of your first climb
- Worst part of the climb
- Thing that surprised you the most
- How has your first climb impacted you
- Best food you brought
- The thing you forgot
- When the sun came up...
Stories and photos that we select will be featured on our social media channels and on the RMI Blog. Those selected will receive a kit of goodies from RMI. Keep an eye on #50yearsofclimbing!
