Private Climbs

Private Rainier Denali Preparation

Private climbs are offered in the Cascades on such climbs at Mt. Baker or North Cascades training courses but not on Rainier except for winter programs and one day training sessions.

Private guides for groups, individualized training and specific peaks can be arranged by calling our office.

We run numerous private trips each season; most commonly:

    Kick Cold to the Curb: Keep Your Hands and Feet Warm on Your Climb

    By Val Peckarsky Regardless of past matrimonial experiences, we have all experienced cold feet at one point or another. As mountaineers, with our penchant for traveling willingly into extreme conditions at high altitudes, we frequently find ourselves on the frontlines of the battle against allowing our extremities to become too cold. Cold-related injuries vary greatly […]
