Earlier this month, we heald our annual group climb on Mount Rainier. Sixteen climbers from all over the world representing JanSport employees, retailers, international distributorships, non-profit partners and media traveled to Ashford, Washington to tackle the mountain for our 46th consecutive climb.
The team of 16 split up in two groups of eight early in the week; One group lead by four Guides up the Emmons Glacier, the other lead by four Guides up Dissapointment Cleaver. We saw near perfect weather (unlike year's past...) and had two successful group summits. To this day, JanSport holds the record for the most consecutive annual group climbs on Mount Rainier.
Here's a first hand look at this year's JanSport Mount Rainier Climb:
Stationed at the base of Mount Rainier in Ashford, WA, the professional guides of International Mountain Guides (IMG) continue to be JanSport’s guide support. In addition to guiding climbs all of the world (including Mount Everest), IMG aids JanSport in the testing and development of high-end on-the-mountain technical packs.
