Perseverance and Scouting: Climbing Mt. Rainier

Steve tells of his friend Karl and his challenging attempt at climbing Washington’s Mount Rainier. In the end their perseverance paid off. You can read this adventure at Perseverance and Scouting in the Voice of Scouting.

Steve closes with this : “Boys thrive on adventure. Let’s make sure that we keep the outing in Scouting, teach them the skills and provide the opportunities to grow in character, citizenship and fitness.”

    Wonderful photos : -) I really enjoyed the play by play trip description and was glad there were rangers on the way that could help a little. Good work fellas!

    Enjoyed the story very much. Just returned from Rainier after climbing the Emmons route with my oldest son (Eagle Scout when I was his scoutmaster) and friends and their sons/daughter last week. Experienced much of what you wrote about. The Prow is still an ugly way to get to Camp Sherman after the Inner Glacier. Instead we elected to walk the fins between some deep crevasses to make our way up to the camp. Very exciting. The time before we climbed the Kautz route and passed a group of Boy Scouts making their way to the top. I love to see young men challenged with adventures like this. It can be done safely and changes lives.
