Peak Season: Training For The Summit with Peter Whittaker

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, Peter Whittaker, talks about the responsibilities of a mountain guide while taking people into the mountains.
