The Clymb Women of Mount Rainier: Nicole

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!

I wear my lucy tanks more often than any oth­er work­out top; they’re extreme­ly com­fort­able and the mate­r­i­al is soft and high quality.

Light My Fire Swedish FireKnife Kit

This is by far my favorite piece of gear. The blade is extreme­ly sharp, which is great for all doing all sorts of tasks around the camp­site. I most recent­ly used mine to chop veg­gies for hobo dinners.

These sun­nies are a clas­sic shape and look great on both women and men. I per­son­al­ly like them because they’re rus­tic look­ing and cute at the same time.

Yog­a­Rat Hot Yoga Towels

I recent­ly dis­cov­ered this is a must-have for any hot yoga class—especially if you don’t want to be that per­son slip­ping and slid­ing all over your mat. They also dry out super fast.

Sorel Women’s Yaquina Boot

These boots are per­fect for tromp­ing around camp or pair­ing with a casu­al pair of jeans. I like that they are stur­dy and fash­ion­able at the same time.

Yog­a­Rat Rat­Mat Pro

I love this yoga mat because it’s made of high-qual­i­ty mate­r­i­al and I don’t slip and slide around. The mat is also pret­ty long so I can be sure to stay on it dur­ing practice.

Clymb Water Bottle

Not only is this Miir water bot­tle the per­fect size, it ALSO has a Clymb logo on it. I like how it has a screw top that doesn’t leak. I take this thing every­where with me.

What inspired me to Sum­mit for Some­one?
The all-lady team of Clymb co-work­ers who sum­mit­ed Mt. Shas­ta through Big City Moun­taineers last year was a big inspi­ra­tion. I had just start­ed work­ing here, and I remem­ber hear­ing their sto­ries along with how excit­ed they were to have sum­mit­ed for a good cause.
