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. August brings great summer weather and good climbing conditions on Mt. Rainier and the nearby North Cascades. The climbing on Russia's Mt. Elbrus is primed for an expedition of the mountain's Northside, and the dry season in Tanzania means great climbing on Mt. Kilimanjaro. This month also marks the beginning of the fall climbing season in the Himalayas. Explore the programs we offer this time of year and come climb with us!
