Mt Rainier with RMI Expeditions

Mt. Rainier Programs

Mt. Rainier, the most extensively glaciated mountain in the continental United States, rises 14,410' above the nearby Pacific and offers limitless mountaineering possibilities. The combination of high altitude, variety of routes, and unpredictable Northwest weather make climbing Mt. Rainier a true mountaineering experience.

Historically, "The Mountain" has served as a training ground for generations of American mountaineers. Countless climbers have scaled Mt. Rainier before going on to climbing careers and adventures on other peaks and adventures around the world.

Founded by Lou Whittaker in 1969, RMI is the oldest and largest guide service on Mt. Rainier.

We offer a variety of program choices for climbers of all abilities, from climbs of the mountain's classic routes, to expedition skills seminars, to specialized skills clinics. RMI's guides are here and ready to help you meet the challenge!
