The SheJumps fundraising climb joins women from across the country to ascend Mt. Rainier in order to raise funds for SheJumps’ youth programs
Climb: July 27 – July 30
We’ll be climbing Mt. Rainier via the classic Disappointment Cleaver route, spending 4 days climbing and training on the mountain with team potluck prior to climb on July 27 to check gear, answer questions and go over logistics.
Thursday, July 27
Gear check, kick off bbq & spend the night at IMG in Ashford located just outside Mt. Rainier National Park.
Friday, July 28
We’ll begin at Paradise (5460’) climbing through Mt. Rainier’s famous alpine meadows and on to the snow of the Muir Snowfield up to Camp Muir (10,050’) where we’ll spend our first night.
Saturday, July 29
After a morning of learning how to safely travel roped up, we’ll practice our new skills by moving across the Cowlitz glacier and climb up to Cathedral Gap and onto The Flats at 11,000 ft where an established tent camp greets you. Then its to bed early for our summit push the next day.
Sunday, July 30
This day is a long one, starting around midnight, summiting and finally returning back down to Paradise in the mid to late afternoon greeted by Support Team and cold drinks.

SPIRIT OF THE CLIMB

We consciously foster a positive energy that exudes encouragement in stride with the technical, physical and emotional challenge at hand. Our all female guides and staff offer support and expertise throughout your training, fundraising and of course, the climb. This is sure to be the experience of a lifetime!
RAISING FUNDS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
SheJumps Mt. Rainier Climb contributes to the nonprofit’s Wild Skills program. Wild Skills youth events teach young girls the survival and technical skills they need for outdoor adventuring. These skills can be applied in any season and include first aid, navigation, leave no trace and shelter building. Our goal as an organization is to grow this program into a long term mentorship model that provides young girls the community that connects them to other women and the natural environment. The funds raised from this climb will help further this vision.
