Private Climbs

Private Cascades 13 Day Mountaineering Course

Private guides for groups, individualized training and specific peaks can be arranged by calling our office. Private training provides a wonderful opportunity for personalized programs from beginning to advanced levels and the chance to develop skills at your own pace. We run numerous private trips each season; most commonly:

  • 4-6 day Training Courses in North Cascades
  • Winter Training Courses (these can often be done on Rainier but generally no summit attempt)
  • Summit climbs of Mt. Baker, Shuksan, Eldorado, Glacier Peak and other classics of the Cascades
  • Rock Climbing Courses
  • Courses in the Alaska Range

For more information about Private Climb Itineraries contact Our Director of Programs, Gordon Janow with your climbing ideas.

The program was everything I thought it was going to be.  It was well planned and executed.  Thanks for a great trip.  I have never been outside the city and it was a blast. Guides were incredible
