Description

Standing tall in the Olympics mountains, Mount Olympus (7,980 feet) is a true highlight in the state of Washington.

For 4 days, I would like to guide you to the summit of the great Mount Olympus. However, like most great mountaineering expeditions, reaching the summit of the peak is just the culmination of a multi-faceted adventure.

Our trip will begin in the wonderful city of Seattle. Shortly after meeting however, we will leave the city behind as we make our way through the lush, dense rain forest in the Hoh valley. Within the great forest, you will get to admire a variety of amazing different giant trees. Some examples include HemlockSitka SpruceDouglas Firs and mighty Ceders. Following our trek through the rain forest, we will begin our journey to top of Mount Olympus.

Our ascent of the mountain will involve crossing a glacier and scaling steep, snowy slopes. It will be tough at points, but we will make sure you are not only safe, but properly instructed every step of the way. And the rewards of standing atop the summit are well worth it. From the peak’s apex, you will get to gaze upon the Olympic mountains and even the Pacific ocean!

As a result of the challenging conditions of the climb, it is important that participants have prior backpacking experience and are in good physical condition. However, you do not require prior mountaineering experience. Hence why we can take people as young as 13 years old to the summit of Mount Olympus.

If you want to summit this great mountain in the Pacific Northwest, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.
