This event is open to people of all skill levels who are ready to take on the challenge of summiting a mountain.  . We will provide you with training hike opportunities to insure you’re prepared to summit the mountain.  These are led by previous Climb For Clean Air participants who will offer guidance every step of the way. Most participants will be novice climbers who want to achieve this dream in a team setting with no prior climbing experience. Together, your team will train, motivate one another and provide important advice to make your climb as fun as possible.

On your climb, you will be led by highly trained professional alpine guides from Timberline Mountain Guides (Mt. Hood & Mt. Adams) or Rainier Mountaineering, Inc. (Mt. Rainier).
