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!
BOGS Plimsoll Tall Boot
I love these boots because they are toasty and they are perfect for cyclocross races.
DAKINE Exodus glove
I go through gloves pretty quickly but these have held up through falls, mud, and the torrential Portland rain.
Outdoor Research Cirque Jacket
This is my favorite hiking, biking, around-town, do-everything jacket.
lucy Double-Time Workout Bra
This bra is perfect for any activity or when I just don’t feel like wearing a real bra. I love it!
VonZipper Elmore space glaze sunglasses
These sunglasses are great for making a statement. I don’t wear sporty sunglasses so they fit my style perfectly.
Ibex Skimmer Hat
I love this hat because I summited Mt Rainer in it!
ALPS Mountaineering Adventure Chair
I love to relax in this chair around a campfire or during a muddy cyclocross race.
SockGuy Wool Crew
These socks are the best for keeping my toes warm during cold bike races.
SockGuy Wool Arm Warmer
I love to wear these arm warmers on chilly morning rides.
My favorite summit snack
