The Ndoto Project has teamed up with the professional Northwest climbers at Mountain Gurus to present the 2013 Klimb for Kenya – a fully guided ascent of Mt. Rainier.  Over the course of three days, you will be trained and then given the chance to ascend the 14,411ft “Crown Jewel of the Cascades”.  The entry fee and donation includes: food (breakfasts and dinners), tents, fuel and stoves, and group climb equipment, and of course seasoned professional guides.

As the most prominent mountain in the contiguous United States, Mount Rainier with its 26 major glaciers provides an excellent climbing experience situated within a pristine wilderness environment. “The Mountain“ as referred to by locals has all the features of much higher glaciated peaks making it an exceptional training ground for aspiring climbers. Mountain Gurus guided ascent climbs the classic Disappointment Clever route to the upper Emmons glacier reaching the Columbia Crest summit at 14,411 feet. Mount Rainier is approached from Paradise Meadows and ascends the Muir Snowfield to Camp Muir at 10,080 feet. This semi-private three-day expedition style ascent provides adequate time to summit and our professional guides will introduce the basic mountaineering skills necessary to make the climb.

You will need recommended equipment and above average physical condition. Previous climbing experience is not necessary.  The essential snow climbing skills will be taught.  A list of recommended equipment will be sent to you with your packet.  For more information, you can also explore the Mountain Gurus pages on their popular Mt Rainier climbs.
