Apparently Liberty Ridge is the go-to route this season for GSG Guides. Apprentice Guide @verticalnomad just topped out Mt. Rainier via the famous Liberty Ridge route last week. This is our second Guide in two weeks to ascend the route. Ash was awarded the American Alpine Clubs “Live Your Dream” grant earlier this year and Liberty Ridge was the coveted route of choice. Congratulations Ash and the rest of your team! Stoked everyone made a safe and successful ascent!
Golden State Guiding's Kelvin Nguyen, along with 6 other team members successfully made the summit of Mt. Rainier this week via the Liberty Ridge route. Conditions were as good as they get, reported Kelvin once back to basecamp. Rangers reported this was the first successful ascent of the route all season, great job everyone! Big congratulations to Kelvin sending a long time dream, couldn't be more happy for him. Keep crushing Kelvin!
