This annual event makes you climb 56 flights of stairs of the Washington Mutual Tower, the second tallest building in Seattle. The reward, besides raising money for CF research, is food, water and beer. This sounds like a good trade-off, and Robert was more than willing to put his beer pouring skills to the test. When the climbing was done, $90,000 dollars had been raised and about 400 glasses of Red Hook were poured. Here are the photos taken when beer wasn't being poured.
