So, Whats next?

Not really sure. I called RMI Guides ( and they told me, much to my dismay, that all Rainier trips are booked for this year. So, what to do, what to do. Do we climb with someone else? NO! You can't climb Rainier without RMI, the best known guiding company in the USA, and perhaps the world.

So we research. Mt. Baker, Grand Teton, Mt Whitney, who knows. We are working through it right now. By early next week, we should have a plan.

Then, getting into shape really has to kick in to high gear. Maybe Core Performance program.

Great blog - good luck with the quest. Forget RMI, there are others who guide Rainier:
# Alpine Ascents International, 206-378-1927
# International Mount Guides, 360-569-2609

Best Rainier blog:

and you will want to be reading

My advice - do Baker before trying Rainier.
good luck from another middle aged novice mountaineer
