Little Tahoma Testimonials

We had a really extraordinary trip. It was a beautiful area and the guides helped to make the most of the days, with a safe and successful summit of Little Tahoma and a bonus climb of K Spire. Everything about the trip and the guides was well coordinated, carefully planned and, where needed improvised. Very impressed with the whole experience.

3 days in close quarters with 2 partners that were strangers going in couldn’t have been more comfortable. Both of my guides were interesting characters, fun to talk to, easy to get along with and a pleasure to be around. I never once felt like we were going to run out of interesting things to talk about. They were thoughtful and patient and surprisingly enthusiastic to do this climb. Their own enthusiasm is infectious and inspiring. I could tell that Little Tahoma and K Spire were off the usual path for them (not just another DC Rainier trip, for example) and it was cool to see them having so much fun doing something new.

I had a great experience. I was a little skeptical about Little Tahoma–felt like a “check the box” for my 20 volcanoes and not one I was looking forward to. But I have to say the whole trip will go down as one of my favorites.  I also loved the experience of climbing K Spire–very cool surprise to be able to do a rarely climbed 5.7 rock climb in the middle of the Emmons Glacier with all that scenery. Was not expecting that and so I’m grateful that the staff had the idea and execution to add it in. Thank you!
