Participant Information

First, a few words about me as a climber: 

I'm a enthusiast climber who love to be up on the mountain (small and big). I have been hiking a bit everywhere  in the North Cascade and in the Alps. Here's my most recent successful climbs :

- Eldorado peak

- Mount Adams

- Mount Temple

- Mount Baker

- Solo climbed the Aconcagua (Argentina - Alpine style from base camp)


First aid level 1


Gears list : https://www.rmiguides.com/mt-rainier/4-day-summit-climb/equipment

This is a long and physically hard climb. You should have a good experience at high altitude, glacier travel, backpacking, etc... before you apply to this trip.

Consider this trip as an expedition. Expect high altitude extreme condition. Early season, icy condition could happen on the way up/down, so you should be prepared for that (you should know how to belay). A double boots is usually the way to go in May/June. The summit push will happen only with perfect weather.

Mt Baker, Mt Adams or something similar could be a good introduction.
