Mount Baker has two anniversaries in August
According to the post, which included pictures of her visit, the climb up Whatcom County’s 10,781-foot stratovolcano in the North Cascades was the 35-year-old’s first try at technical mountaineering.
“It was my first dance with technical mountaineering, and boy am I FULLY in,” the post said. “There are so many places I’m hoping to check off my ever growing list, but I do know that I can’t wait to visit you again, Mount Baker.”
Moore’s post said she made the climb with a couple of friends, including Melissa Arnot Reid, the first American woman to climb Mount Everest without oxygen.
“There are some many lessons to be learned within the majesty of the mountains, and I’m ever grateful to get the opportunity to experience it alongside friends like @melissaarnot and @adrienneschaefer,” Moore’s post read.
