Peak Season: Training For The Summit with Ed Viesturs

2y ago


Mount Rainier is unique in the contiguous United States. No mountain has as large or as many glaciers and the prominance is far larger than any other fourteener. The highest trailhead requires the climber to gain 9,000 feet of elevation to reach the summit. If you are planning an attempt on Rainier there are a few things you should know. Here, First Ascent Mountain Guide, Ed Viesturs, talks about the most important thing people can bring with them to a climb.
