Where do Summit For Someone climbers come from?


When you ask folks to raise money by climbing a mountain such as Rainier or Whitney or Shasta, you’d assume they come from all those mountainous regions of the Western U.S., training by taking hikes at high altitude before their climb, right?  Not so.

I did a little informal study on where our 75 currently registered climbers live — you might be surprised. (Of course, I know that every year we have lots of folks come from non-mountainous areas of the U.S., like Delaware, Florida, or my native Iowa, so I’m not as surprised). Check out the list:
