Liberty Ridge, Mt. Rainier, WA from Mark Smiley on Vimeo.

Video by Mark Smiley– Committed continues with a successful climb of Liberty Ridge on Mt. Rainier. The climb was amazing, all 10,000 vertical feet of it. Justin H. and Matt M. joined us for the climb. All told, it took three days to get up and back down. Starting at the White River Campground we hiked into the Winthrop Glacier. Day two, we advanced to Thumb Rock. Day three, we went to the top and all the way down and out… it was a 16-hour day!
