ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Lindsay Peyton

Mountain Madness has long served as a base camp for climbers in West Seattle. It’s the place to go to hire a guide, rent equipment and plan a big adventure on peaks around the world.

The business has served customers from around the world since it opened in 1984. Recently, Mountain Madness moved its headquarters from Luna Park to 9249 17 Avenue SW in White Center, where the vista of Mt. Rainier provides the perfect backdrop for climbing enthusiasts.
