Gear manufacturer First Ascent is giving away the expedition of a lifetime by offering up the opportunity to climb Mt. Rainier with two climbing legends. The five day trip will see one lucky winner join Ed Viesturs and Peter Whittaker on a guided climb up the 14,411 foot Rainier, which sits in the Cascade Mountain Range, in Washington state. And if that wasn’t enough, they’ll fully outfit you with all the gear you’ll need too!
To enter the contest, you’ll need to go to this page and fill out the form, which includes all the regular stuff like your name, address, and so on. But it’s going to take more than that to join this climbing team. You’ll also have to write a 300-500 word essay explaining why you should be the one chosen to go on the climb, and post your “adventure resume” in 250 words or less. Finally, you’ll also be asked to upload a 3-5 minute video that demonstrates your “thirst for adventure”.
After you’ve jumped through all of those hoops, you might get selected to go on this expedition. So make sure your entry stands out, and you could be the one who gets to join Ed and Peter on this expedition of a lifetime.
