SheJumps Fundraising Climbs offer opportunities for supporters to climb big mountains while raising awareness and critical funding for our mission. The technical, physical, and emotional challenges of climbing these mountains are an incredible way to experience the SheJumps mission first-hand.

Here’s how it works:
Sign up for one of the fundraising climbs using the links below and raise money for SheJumps. SheJumps provides a fundraising toolkit and your own fundraising website/page to share with friends and family. SheJumps covers the cost of your climb and you are responsible for raising a certain amount of money to participate in the climb. Each climb has a different fundraising minimum and deadline.
During the fundraising climbs, we consciously foster a positive energy that exudes encouragement in stride with the technical, physical and emotional challenge at hand. We try to work with female guides wherever possible and we are proud to collaborate with some of the best guiding outfitters in the western United States. Our SheJumps team is there to support you with fundraising efforts as well. In 2022, we will be offering special incentives from our brand partners for the top fundraiser on each climb.
Fundraising climbs for 2022 include:
The heavy winter storms of the Pacific Northwest leave the Coleman, Deming, and Easton glaciers of Mt. Baker (Koma Kulshan) smooth and blanketed with large fields of white each spring. It’s the perfect playground for skiers who like a LOT of vertical descent. With a day of ski mountaineering training, a majestic northwest summit, and over a vertical mile of turns on the descent, a guided summit ski descent of Mt. Baker is one of the best three-day adventures imaginable. The skiing at its steepest reaches 35+ degrees on the Roman Wall. This program is for very fit, advanced skiers with a great sense of adventure.
Whether you’re a climbing fanatic, knocking one adventure off the bucket list or want to help inspire a new generation of outdoor women, the SheJumps Mt. Rainier (Tahoma) climb will give you an experience unlike any other. This three-day program, via the Muir Corridor/Disappointment Cleaver on Mt. Rainier, is the most popular climb on the mountain. It provides a more extraordinary expedition experience than a two-day climb, while allowing you to attempt the summit with the greatest ease and enjoyment.
The quintessential glaciated Cascades peak, Mt. Baker, known locally as Koma Kulshan or simply Kulshan, provides a fantastic climbing experience for both the novice and developed mountaineer. Unlike the geographically-lonely Rainier, Mt. Baker looks into the heart of the Cascade Range for tremendous views of endless steep, snow-capped peaks. Mt. Baker offers the perfect introduction to mountaineering, and is often considered the best glacier training venue in the United States. A true wilderness outing, climbers carry gear to camp, spend a full day training, and summit via the beautiful Easton glacier.
This five-day climb of Mount Olympus is an excellent choice for climbers who appreciate the journey as well as the destination. This instructional course/summit climb teaches the basics of glacier mountaineering, including proper ice axe use and self-arrest skills, glacier travel, and basic rope techniques while aiming to summit a remote peak at the very center of Olympic National Park.
One of the most recognizable mountains in the country, the Grand Teton (Dae Wunt) has drawn visitors to the Jackson Hole area as long as history has been recorded. The mystique of this iconic mountain is captivating for anyone who has seen it in person. A crucible of American alpinism, the climbers who honed their craft here in the golden age went on to lead first ascents of the big walls of Yosemite, Patagonian spires and the Himalaya. Become part of its history by standing on top and join us for an amazing summit and a greater appreciation for the remarkable alpine environment only the Tetons can deliver.
