Rainier in Seattle and found the experience to be quite rewarding, although he doesn’t miss the intense training regimen required for the climb. The training regimen included hour long sessions on a stepmill with a 40 pound backpack, hour long sessions walking up and down the Northbrook sledding hill with a 45 pound pack, 6-7 mile hikes with a 45 pound pack, and hour long sessions on the treadmill set at the highest inclination with a 45 pound pack. This training regimen is guaranteed to lead to weight loss!!
