Climb to the top of Mt. Saint Helens and peer into the crater with guide Jared Smith.
Smith led the GearJunkie crew to the summit of Mt. Saint Helens in June. A climber and SAR professional, Smith has more than 300 ascents of the famous volcano (and dozens of rescues) under his belt.
Part of the GearJunkie “Scorched Earth” video series, this episode tells Smith’s story, from crater research to rescue situations up and down Saint Helens’ flanks.
