I am sure everyone agrees that your guides are the biggest strength. We had a very diverse group – different ages, abilities, gender, culture etc. Having a guide group similarly diverse made a huge difference. All the guides were patient and took time to explain things, get to know the climbers, and connect with the climbers.
Mount Rainier 3 Day Muir Climb Testimonials
Absolutely enjoyed the climb. Amazing guides that were fun to spend time with and extremely prepared and capable, and a fun crew to boot! It was great that each brought their own focus, interests, and flavors of each skill. It was really tremendous. I would highly recommend Alpine Ascents and this trip specifically to others.
Our guides were very knowledgeable and I was impressed with how the trip was organized. I’ve been up Mount Rainier three times with the last two being with another organization. You have them beat. The 2 night itinerary gave us enough time to enjoy the experience. Truly a memory maker. First class all the way.
I really appreciate that you offer a true 3-day climb of Rainier. It made a big difference to me. It provided an additional day to acclimatize, a shorter approach to the summit, and an additional day of training on the mountain. It was an excellent trip from beginning to end.
This expedition was a trip of a lifetime. From gear check, to the guides, snow school, and reaching the true summit of Rainier, this was an outstanding and unique experience. Alpine Ascents went above and beyond to foster new friendships, safety, and the small comforts that make a home away from home. Truly a wonderful experience from beginning to end.
I am still in awe of this experience! This climb has exceeded my expectations and them some. My guides were my saviors on this trip. They were very encouraging and patient with us. I really feel like I made four new lifelong friends.
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.
