The Clymb Women of Mount Rainier: Anna

On August 18, 2013 I set out to climb Mount Rainier with five other women who work at The Clymb. Our mission was philanthropic, part of Big City Mountaineers’ Summit For Someone program, in which individuals ascend challenging mountains as a way to raise money to get under-resourced youth outdoors.

We put in the sweat on the mountain but now we need your help to reach our fundraising goal of $27,000. Shop any of the outfits we recommend in the What We Wear sale and The Clymb will donate a portion of the proceeds to our cause.

Check out my selections below then read on to learn a little more about me and see some images from our climb!
