Alpine Ascents is excited to be offering excursions from the famed Sheldon Mountain House (SMH); one of the most remote and unique huts in the world!
Our first 3 teams of the season reached the summit on the same day! Dispatches Here
First kudos for Rainier 2016:
"Our lead guide Stuart not only led our group, he also led anyone we came into contact with on the mountain. His knowledge of the mountain, weather, etc are confidence inspiring. I would highly recommend this climb to anyone looking for an efficient, safe, challenging and fun Rainier adventure." More
Alpine Ascents knocked it outta the park! This was my 3rd trip with AAI (Baker; Ecuador & Rainier) and each time I'm impressed with the quality/safety of your company. Job Well Done!!! The cool thing about this trip was the vast knowledge we had guiding the trip. Guides who have summited the tallest; nastiest peaks around the world. Thanks again to AAI for another unbelievable trip! Everyone left impressed with your staff/guides and for most an experience like no other.

The entire experience was amazing! From the initial conversations with the Alpine team in Seattle, through the actual summit experience, every question was answered and every detail addressed to ensure success on the mountain. The guides were wonderful! They were outgoing and extremely helpful – offering to assist in any way possible. Excellent equipment. The food was really good! Other climbing expeditions seemed to look on with envy. The program is wonderful! I would definitely climb with Alpine Ascents on another climb. The memories will be treasured!

I want to thank you for an adventure of a lifetime. As always the staff and logistics of Alpine Ascents exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be more satisfied. A while back you mentioned win-win relationships. My win was a rewarding trip to Mt. Everest. AAI's win (and mine too) is my decision to climb Mt. Elbrus and Carstensz Pyramid to complete the seven summits and trek to Machu Picchu and probably Everest base camp with my wife. Thanks again for everything.
AAI delivered again on my expectations. Flawless planning, preparation, logistic and execution. Best guides in the business. Most enjoyable experience on a challenging, long time away from the family trip. I cannot recommend AAI enough to friends, family and anyone who asks my opinion on who to sign up with for life-changing climbing and trekking experiences.

Outstanding trip! It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. All the guides were terrific. The program has no weaknesses that I could point to. The strengths are almost too numerous to recite here. The route selection made the peak aesthetic to be on. While personally, I have climbed a lot of technical peaks I found the guides handling of the broad range of experience levels to be excellent. The quality was so good, that I will be giving serious thought to climbing with your group in the Himalayas.

This Just In - I really enjoyed the expedition, guides were very organized and in all time it was present the technical resources, as well as the experience of a very well supported company. It is important to mention, that the food provided in all our camps was perfect, our guides always were committed to give us wonderful meals. For me, the complete program is perfect, and I really congratulate Alpine Ascents for the good guides that you have.
