Backpacker Magazine's Summit for Someone Benefit Climb Series
With space for 775 SFS participants in 2008, there are three categories of climbs to satisfy everyone’s needs: Glacier, Alpine Rock and Expeditions.
The traditional Summit for Someone Glacier climbs are 2-5 days long and take place in locales such as Mt. Rainier, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Hood, Mt. Olympus, Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan, Mt. Moran, and more! The fundraising goal for Glacier climbs is $3400-$4000. A new addition this year, Alpine Rock climbs will include roped scrambling with less glacier or ice travel. The Alpine Rock climbs are 2-4 days long and will go to Mt. Langley, Humphries Peak, Buck Mountain, Grand Teton and Mt. Whitney. Alpine Rock's fundraising goal for participants is $2900-$3500. The alpine rock climbs target individuals who might not be interested in glacial travel or who prefer technical rock climbing. The 5-10 day Expeditions will take place in the Sierra's, Alaska and Mexico.
Each climb is lead by professional and well-renowned guide services such as Jackson Hole Mountain Guides, Rainier Mountaineering International and Sierra Mountaineering International.
