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. September marks the last of the summer climbing conditions on Mt. Rainier and the perfect time to get out for a climb before winter. On Mt. Kilimanjaro the dry season keeps the mountain's trails and views dry and clear and concentrates the wildlife for great game viewing on safari. Explore the programs we offer this time of year and come climb with us!
