July 02, 2010 -  Mark Smiley    
 

Mark and Janelle Smiley's goal: To be the first people to climb all of the routes made famous by a book published in 1979, Fifty Classic Climbs of North America.

Most recently completed: Mt. Rainier

"The Smileys Project: 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!"
