SPIRIT OF THE CLIMB

There is a unique spirit of comradery with all SheJumps events. Endless high fives, gut busting laughs and summit dance parties are just the beginning. 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. Our events encourage girls to learn new skills, take on challenges and think creatively which develops perseverance and fosters confidence. The funds raised from this climb will help further this vision.

A $400 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your space. Upon submitting your $400 deposit, you will be notified of your acceptance to the climb and directed to complete the Participation Agreement.

You are not officially registered until you have completed & signed the Participation Agreement.

Each climber agrees to fundraise $3500 for SheJumps Wild Skills youth initiative. This Eventbrite registration/application is in conjunction with your deposit (paid here through Eventbrite). This climb includes transportation during the climb, $200 gear rental/meal plan credit, guiding, course instruction, and lodging. Each climber must provide their own transportation to Ashford, WA - carpooling opportunities will be provided. Gratuity for the guides is not included, please budget accordingly; it's greatly appreciated. We highly recommend also purchasing trip insurance for this event.

What is Wild Skills?

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 events encourage girls to learn new skills, take on challenges and think creatively which develops perseverance and fosters confidence. Our goal is to see girls learning, having fun and connecting in an encouraging environment with amazing instruction and support from female mentors. We want Wild Skills to be an experience they will remember, one that will spark a lifetime of passion for the outdoors and will remind them that they are capable of anything. The funds raised from this climb will help further this vision.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

No. This is a very popular climb with a long list of climbers waiting to participate, we will release open spots to the waitlist.

If I have to cancel for some reason, do I get my deposit back?

No. Your deposit is non-refundable. The closer we get to the course, the harder it will be for us to fill your spot. We recommend looking into options for trip interruption/cancellation insurance.

What does the climb include?

The climb covers your transportation during the climb, food, $200 gear rental/meal plan credit, accommodation and guiding/instruction. It does not cover your transportation to and from Ashford.

Do I need to have Alpine/Rock climbing or mountaineering experience?

No. If you do, that’s great, but it is not a requirement.

What kind of gear do I need?

Each climber will have a $200 rental/meal plan credit as part of the SheJumps Team. You can use this credit toward gear rental or the meal plan service offered by Whittaker Mountaineering. Wherever possible, we recommend borrowing gear so you can get a sense of what you prefer to use before committing to purchasing. Check out the full gear list here:

Do you have an itinerary for the week?

Focusing on team building and training, the first two days prepare us for our climb with an afternoon orientation and a Mountaineering Day School. We then ascend Mt. Rainier's lower slopes to Camp Muir (10,060'), where we stay for the evening and prepare for the climb ahead. On summit day, an alpine start brings us up the Disappointment Cleaver route to the mountain's summit. We then safely descend and celebrate over cold drinks & a hearty meal!

Is food provided on the trip?

If you choose to spend your $200 credit on the meal plan then, YES. Read more about it here: https://www.whittakermountaineering.com/meal-packages/4-day-muir-summit-climb-meal-package

Is there wifi at the lodge?

Yes, you can Instagram without worry!
