This coveted trip features a small team of 6 and is lead by an IFMGA Mountain Guide. Our trip includes a weather contingency day and customized touch.
Rainier is a big mountain, 5th tallest in the lower 48. The starting elevation is just over 5,000ft and the summit is 14,411ft.
The Kautz route is unique from then the standard Disappoint Cleaver route. The route has a more remote experience and requires sections of technical climbing and steeper snow/ice.
A training day is included before we start up the route.
