Great trip and experience with “Team A.”  Thanks to our guides and the positive energy and helping us maximize our time.  Will definitely travel with RMI again.

I had a great time spending a few days on Mount Rainier. Sure, the route was cut short, but Dave, Joey and Jenna pulled out all the stops to make this a memorable climb and make me appreciate the many facets of the mountain!
Thank you,
Alex
