Mount Rainier 3 Day Muir Climb Testimonials

The entire trip was spectacular. Reaching the summit was exhilarating but only a portion of the fun. From registration to final check-in, the Alpine Ascents team did a great job. I have used multiple guide services in the past but this team ranks at the top of the list.

My second climb with Alpine Ascents, and it just keeps getting better. Quality of guides, program, culture, positivity, conversation, fun, food provided, information — just awesome.

My husband and I had an incredible trip on Mount Rainier. We were fortunate to have conditions to summit, but even if we hadn’t the trip was so worthwhile. I felt so supported by Alpine Ascents as someone who has never done this before – everything from the training guidelines to hear help, the amazing nurturing food on the trip, the skills and leadership of our guides – it was truly wonderful. Watching the sunrise as we summited Rainier was one of the most breathtaking experiences of my life.

AAI has excellent guides who are experienced, knowledgeable and personable. And the office staff is also excellent. They make even the most novice climber feel at ease and confident. It is hard for me to find anything that needs improvement. Thanks for another good experience. I always recommend AAI to anyone who is thinking about a climbing or trekking experience.

Our guides were extremely knowledgeable about the mountain and were incredible and patient teachers. I felt confident with the education they passed on and they were constantly giving feedback for improvement. They were positive, frank, fun, and approachable. We really could not have asked for better guides!

Our guides were very easy to get along with. We loved our guides. The program was awesome. I can’t think of a single thing you could do to improve it. I loved the experience.

I would and will whole-heartedly recommend Alpine Ascents to any and all persons I know. Our guides were absolutely phenomenal. Having four people of such high caliber lead us was unbelievable. I cannot thank them enough for imparting their knowledge and wisdom. Beyond that, they were just great people. Mountains can be climbed by lots of people, but those four guides set your organization apart in my eyes and turned this from a great experience to a once in a life time event.

I loved every minute of it. The quality of the expedition was top notch from start to finish. We got very lucky with a perfect weather window, and the climb itself could not have been more stunning. It was one of those absolutely perfect experiences.

This expedition was one of the best experiences of my life. Every single aspect of the trip was exactly what I was hoping for and more. This was absolutely worth every penny spent towards this trip. The guides were exceptional leaders and they all worked extremely well together. They were very knowledgeable in all aspects of the climb and they were very confident without being intimidating. I really do think the guides added to my excellent experience. I would absolutely do another trip with that exact team with no reservations.

Loved the three days on Rainier – my gosh, I’m still smiling about so many terrific moments. My one picture regret is not snapping a pic at 1 am when I got out of my tent on summit morning. Have never seen so many stars!
