Mt Olympus Summit Climb -- 5 days
Mt Olympus Summit Climb is an incredible adventure that takes you into the Olympic Mountains through one of the last remaining true old growth rainforests in the continental United States up into the alpine zone of the heavily glaciated summit of Mount Olympus. The valley approach along the Hoh River allows us to appreciate the abundance and diversity of natural beauty of the most complete and rewarding mountain experience in the Northwest. We explore the 3.8 mile-long Blue Glacier and learn the necessary glacier travel skills for our ascent. Our climbing route takes us to the top of the Snow Dome, then on to the summit pyramid where we scramble up rock of moderate difficulty.
We take responsibility of the environment seriously and learning how to take care of the environment is an important part of our programs. We believe there are 3 elements that make our trips special: Authenticity: We give you the tools to enjoy your adventure, and you will come away knowing that you were integral part of the experience. Environment: We travel in low ratios to minimize impact on the land and to give our clients the best possible experience while being mindful of the pristine, natural areas in which we travel. Ethics: Leave No Trace guides us as we travel to remote alpine regions. We follow the Seven Principles to avoid impacting these fragile ecological zones. We go to places that offer a rare glimpse into the beauty of nature whether skiing, climbing or trekking, and believe wholeheartedly that our impact should simply be making friends and leaving only footprints and good memories behind. To help facilitate Carbon Neutral Travel we teamed up with Sustainable Travel International. Through STI we can offer carbon offsets for all travel as well as finding philanthropic causes to help along the way.
