Congratulations! Was this via DC route? I’m assuming the ladders are back up now on that route? Thank you!

What an amazing experience!  Fun, safe, encouraging. I couldn’t quit smiling. The team was great, and the guides brought out the best in everyone. A transformative experience, and one I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. Training for this climb changed my life, and standing on top of the world for a few moments changed me forever. Truly grateful!

I could not thank enough to our RMI guides and team members who contributed and shared this lifelong memories. I really enjoyed the stores behind each climber on why dreamed the summit of Mt. Rainier and how to take efforts to make the dream become true.

I know I made a right choice to pick RMI as my guide service. I will definitely refer RMI to my friends for future mountaineering adventures.

Message for Mitch Valaitis,
Did Joe and his guide make the summit on 6/26/24, with the high winds, clouds, and cold temperatures? I would be very interested to hear.
