Mount Rainier 4 Day Emmons Climb Testimonials

Yes, tremendously. The knowledge, expertise, and human relations and communications skills of the guides were very high level.  We benefited from good weather and favorable route conditions.

I deeply enjoyed my expedition, it was a fantastic and, in most ways, ideal introduction to technical glacier travel. My guides were rock stars, the weather was superb, the route was challenging and gratifying and yet accessible, and I felt I was adequately prepared in some part thanks to AAI’s clear insistence on fitness preparation.
