The wife and I are thinking about a summit attempt some time next summer and are looking for a third experienced climber to join the team. Our experience is limited, I have a successful summit on Rainier from July of 2014 through RMI guides. We both took the Alpinism 1 course this past July with AAI and summited Mt Baker.

Currently we have a high fitness level. We bag peaks in Mount Rainier NP via non-technical scramble routes and trail run the flats and descents.

So, if you are looking to add two people to your team or you would like to help us attain our mountaineering goals please respond.......Thanks!!

Hey John,

Im also planning a summit attempt next summer and am looking to join a team. I'm from the east coast and have taken many people out in the winter months climbing up Mt. Washington. I was out on Rainier with RMI on the DC route this past fall in which we made it to the Ingram flats. I'm looking to get to the top this time around. I'm avalanche 1 certified, WFR certified and have a high fitness level. I'd still want to get someone who has experience with crevasses to join the team, but I can add valued support and can help lead the foot pack!

PM me and let me know what you think!
