RMI leads programs to the greatest peaks and destinations around the world and we take advantage of the best climbing conditions for each place that we visit. In June, the climbing on Alaska's Mt. McKinley is in great condition while the climbing is truly getting underway on Mt. Rainier with a wide selection of programs heading out the door.
