Video of the Week: The Olympic Traverse


Jason Hummel and Tim Black documented their incredible journey from north to south across the Olympic Mountains last spring. Most people don’t bother to take out a camera and film while they’re bushwhacking across a creek in a thicket of slide alder because it’s just too horrifying. This video is a testament to good attitude!

Jason Hummel will be at Backcountry Essentials in Bellingham on October 7 giving a slideshow to raise money for the Bellingham Mountain Rescue Council, an all-volunteer nonprofit that has been performing rescues in Whatcom County’s mountains since 1955.
