FAQs: Mountain Climbing in United States

What should I know about Mountain Climbing United States?

Mount Shasta, in the Cascades, is a great climb. It sits at 4,321 meters and is one of the largest stratovolcanoes in the world. Neighbouring Mount Hood at 3,429 meters is also a good option and is not too difficult to climb. Mount Ranier is the tallest mountain in the Cascade range and not an easy climb. It’s worth it for the 360-degree views of the Cascades though. On the other side of the country, you’ll find Mount Washington, a challenging climb with challenging weather conditions. And if you’re really after a challenge, there’s Mount Denali in Alaska, the tallest mountain in North America and the third most prominent in the world.

Great trip. Weather was only bummer as it rained one whole day. Guides were very helpful and friendly. Plan to do it again next year.


We had such a great time summiting Whitney! Our guide Ben was very knowledgeable and respectful. We almost didn’t trek Mt. Russell due to too much smoke in the air and bad air quality, but the smoke cleared by early morning and we were able to make it out. Thanks again Ben for the memories!


Took the 5 days Mountaineering course on Mt Baker with Miyar. Sandeep is a super friendly person and he was able to set this course up for is on very short notice. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The guides were super friendly and helpful. I feel more confident on glaciers now that I know glacier travel and crevasse rescue! Would recommend it to anyone interested in getting into mountaineering.


Overall, an absolutely incredible experience and memories that will last for a long time. For someone who had never done a glacier climb, this was an amazing experience. First time being roped up and getting to stare into the belly of the beast (a crevasse) was an unforgettable experience. Our guides Tyler and Chris were extremely knowledgeable. Throughout our trip they kept sharing interesting anecdotes and tips about climbing. Once we reached basecamp, they took us out in the snow to review cramponing, snow skills and how to wear a harness and attach yourselves to a rope. This was supposed to be a 3 day climb, but due to inclement weather it became a 2 day climb. We lucked out with the weather clearing from first day afternoon until second day evening. On the second day we set out with an alpine start at 2 am. At the summit, the views were absolutely breathtaking - by far the prettiest mountaintop I had seen. We were absolutely surrounded by mountain peaks on every side. We got to spend a nice 40 minutes at the top and hoofed it back to the trailhead by 5 pm. We thought we were done, but no - at the coffee break our guides told us we had paid for 3 days - so what did we want to do on the third day? They took us to a rock-climbing structure and taught us the basics of crevasse rescue and answered a whole bunch of mountaineering questions (we had a LOT). Absolutely unexpected and this third day was the cherry on the top.


This was an absolutely amazing experience for me. I had never climbed a glaciated mountain before, and was completely new to all the skills and equipment required for such a venture. Our guides Chris and Sandeep were super knowledgeable and consistently shared a lot of information with us. We learned how to wear a harness, tie ourselves to a rope, rope team safety, and basic snow skills. We started for the summit around 2:30am and reached the top in about 6 hours. We lucked out weather wise as it was sunny and not windy at all. The view at the top was breathtaking to say the least! Our guides made us feel safe and gave lots of tips on improving our techniques during the climb, so it was a great learning experience. Would definitely do another climb with them again!
