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. July is the heart of the climbing season on Mt. Rainier as well as the nearby North Cascades and we lead all types of climbs. In Europe the snows of Mt. Elbrus are in great climbing shape and the dry season arrives in Tanzania, making it the perfect time to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. In South America, the peaks of Peru see the best of the summer climbing and trekking season. Explore the programs we offer this time of year and come climb with us!
