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!

I have summited some amazing peaks, but Mt. Whitney has stolen my heart. From her diverse landscape, to the ever changing appearance of her face each hour of the day; she is a wild beauty not easily put out of your mind. This Jersey girl hiked/climbed/scrambled-up/slid-down the Mountaineer’s Route, which was both physically and mentally challenging but, incredibly fulfilling. My guide, Matt M., was confident, extremely knowledgeable and skilled, and I am pretty sure part mountain goat. Best guide I have ever had, prettiest mountain I have ever been on; if you are considering this hike, I would say DO IT!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. I had the very best experience climbing Mount Baker with Miyar Adventures. Coordination was not the easiest with Covid but they were very communicative throughout the process. This was my first roped travel experience and I felt that Miyar prepared me very well with gear lists and videos before the trip and with hands on training the day before our summit. Everyone was very courteous when it came to masks and social distancing. When we lost our guide just a couple days before due to cold symptoms (he took precautions and got a Covid test right away but the results window may have impacted our trip - it ended up being negative thankfully) the owner, Sandeep, stepped in to guide us! Sandeep made sure we were all safe and had a great time. Our team all summited successfully! I would definitely recommend this guide company and will be booking with them again in the future!

I recently went on a Baker climb with Miyar Adventures and I should say that they organized the trip pretty well and kept us on schedule throughout the trip. Glen helped us with gear picks, glacier travel skills and not to mention taught us few important knots, and gave a demonstration of the crevasse rescue system. Although it's pretty tough to remember all from the demo; I could certainly understand the mechanism of it. Glen and Sandeep showed their commitment to customer service to not only guide us on the climb but teach us few worthwhile skills. I would recommend them for their friendly nature with great guide service being provided.
