MT. RAINIER, Wash., — The Torklift International team is making their ascent to the top of Mount Rainier right now.
Torklift President Jack Kay and Assistant Marketing Director Sheryl Bushaw began their climb to the top this morning.
If they complete their journey to the top of the 14,411 foot mountain, they will plant the Torklift International flag at the peak and announce a new mystery product to be called, “Summit.”
Kay and Bushaw are the last climbing team permitted on the mountain for the season as the weather becomes too treacherous for climbing. The climbing team is called Omega. They will be battling various terrains as well as the potential for altitude sickness.
The climb will entail crossing crevasses that are hundreds of feet deep, darkness and cold weather. They are expected to summit on Tuesday. Their descent down the mountain will conclude at Paradise Trail Head where they will be greeted by Torklift International staff.
