Mt. St. Helens Guided Climb with Women Who Hike

6 spots left


Join Women Who Hike for a once in a lifetime opportunity atop Mount St. Helens. Women Who Hike is a US based organization that through community connects and inspires those who are on their own explorative journey through hiking, self-discovery, and a connection to nature.  


You’ll be joined by a group of like-minded women as we scale one of the Pacific Northwest’s most iconic peaks. You can make Mt. St. Helens your first volcano summit with a professional guide to learn the skills to climb with confidence. St. Helens is one of the lower and technically easier glaciated peaks in the Pacific Northwest but is still a strenuous climb as the starting elevation is relatively low.  


This is a single-day hike. This adventure is a full day, and you must be in adequate physical condition to attempt the hike. Indigenous Peoples including the neighboring Puyallup tribe call Mount St. Helens "Louwala-Clough" or "Loowit," which means smoking mountain.  


This trip requires a minimum of 5 people to run.

Grew up on the lakes and tromping around the piney, snowy woods of northern Michigan. There I enjoyed skiing, ice-skating, kayaking, fishing and other water sports. Somehow ended up in Chicago for 8 years….in my office, I dreamed of mountains and the outdoors. Moved to Portland about a decade ago to be an art librarian. Finally made my dreams a reality, librarian by week and outdoor adventurer/professional by weekend. For the past 6 years, I have worked volunteering as a recreational climbing educator, outdoor exposure for at-risk youth as an instructor and guide; as well as supporting local public/academic libraries. For the past 4 years, I’ve professionally guided hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, mountaineering and (most recently) skiing.


Day 1: Mt. St. Helens Summit

Start out with your guide and summit this iconic mountain. It's a strenuous adventure, but at the end, you'll have summited one of Washington's five volcanoes.  


Climbers will need to be in decent physical condition in order to climb 4,500 feet in five miles in one day. Plan on it taking 12 hours round trip. Permits to climb this mountain sell out within hours each season, but with a guide, you can get up the mountain to the rim of the crater.  


You will need equipment such as an ice axe, crampons, and hard-shell or wind jacket in addition to your regular hiking gear. Once booked, your guides will provide you with a detailed gear list appropriate for the conditions during your time of climb. Lots of gear is available to rent.
