How to Sign Up

Sunrise from above Disappointment Cleaver

This climb is open to anyone who is physically fit and will commit to a training regimen to prepare themselves for the climb. Prior mountain climbing experience is not necessary, but is beneficial. One day of training is included in the climb. Training will cover roped glacier travel, knots, and use of an ice axe. Prior experience with backpacking and camping is recommended.  



1 - Register for the Climb


To sign up, visit the registration web site here. The registration fee can be paid by credit card. After registering, create your personal fundraising web page where you can send people to sponsor you by credit card.


Do this early, because the Climb has filled up each year lately.

4 - Train like your life depended on it!

You'll probably be ready if you can run 5 miles 4 days a week and be doing that for about a month prior to the climb. Of course running isn't the only exercise that will get you into the shape you need to be in. Biking, Stairmasters, and long hikes with a pack will help too. If you live in the area, day hikes to Camp Muir are highly recommended to give you a feel for what to expect on the climb.



4 - Attend the pre-climb preparation meeting on Tuesday, July 8th.

Donations received by this date will be eligible for the Mt. Everest Base Camp Trek Prize. At that time, you'll meet some of your fellow climbers, be assigned a route, have a chance to ask any questions, and get assigned group gear to bring. If you can't make this meeting, we will go over everything with you by phone and email.
