Description

Take your climbing talents to the volcano and spend four days on an incredible program to the top of Glacier Peak! Utilize a wide range of mountaineering skills and follow your knowledgeable guide to one of the most renowned peaks in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State!

Located in the northwest corner of the United States in the state of Washington, the Cascade Mountains are a popular place for tourism among travelers and adventurers. Cutting down the center of the state, they are easily accessible from Seattle and even Vancouver, and some of the mountains are infamous for great climbs, unique glacier terrain, and fascinating legends.

Glacier Peak is the most remote volcano in Washington as well as one of its most active. As the state’s fourth-highest peak, it has consistently been a part of regional significance across cultures. It is heavily glaciated with a long, diverse approach of meadows, cedar and fir trees, and uncanny views. All these features make for one awesome mountaineering expedition.

Your program starts near Seattle, and you will traverse trail and glacier to reach the top. It is a great mountaineering course that covers many disciplines of climbing. You will receive instruction on ice axe positioning, self-arrest, crampons, climbing knots, and so much more. By the end of your four-day program, you will have applied valuable skills in hazard assessment and glacier travel to summit one of the most notorious mountains in the region.

If you are looking for an all-encompassing mountain adventure, you will absolutely love this immersive program. Reaching the mountain requires more than ten miles of foot travel, which means you have a great opportunity to learn about the area and its history. It is a tangible experience in an evocative location that is a definitive part of Washington nature.

This is a sustained and challenging climb, so previous mountaineering experience is required. You should be in good shape to participate in this climb as well.

This area is special to me and sharing it with others is a dream come true. I will guide you on a safe and fun program that is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Book this unforgettable mountaineering program NOW and spend four days becoming a better climber and having the time of your life!

We can also try a four-day backpacking program in Olympic National Park! Or we can climb Sahale Peak on a two-day mountaineering program!

Sandeep and his wife, Jasmine, are lovely guides! We did a 1 day intro to rock climbing excursion with them and we had a great time! They communicated well and provided us with a fun and safe day of climbing. They chose routes based on our experience and taught us a lot. I highly recommend hiring Miyar Adventures. We have already shared their info with friends and family.

Five days of awesome is all I can say. Glen our instructor and guide was extremely knowledgeable. I had previous glacier mountaineering experience and his techniques were so much more efficient than what I had been taught. To top it off we had a great summit day.

Whole group summited! Huge thanks to the guides for helping us all get there! It's certainly not an easy climb, but the entire experience was fantastic. Especially loved the snow skills training on the second day. Lots of fun was had practicing the self arrest & team arrest. The team arrest training was a huge confidence builder to see that I wasn’t going to take the entire team down if I fell The lead guide (Glen) was fabulous. You can tell he really enjoys sharing his passion for the outdoors with the guests on his trip. Folks in the store are super helpful as well. Sandeep (owner) is great, and have talked with him in the store & via email several times to get advice. Great pre-trip guidance (including a meeting the night before the climb to make sure you have all the gear you need & nothing you don’t), and you can tell how much Sandeep cares about making sure every guest has a great experience. Lots of reasonably priced gear rental options available here as well if you aren’t sure if mountaineering is for you. Considering a Kili trip while I’m still in good hiking shape, and they’ll be the first place I look at if I decide to book.

I took the Mountaineering skills course (5 days) in Baker. I learned so much about Glacier travel, rope management, crevasse rescue, and much more! Glen, our guide was awesome and highly knowledgeable. We also got to summit Mt. Baker during the course which was the most magical part! I HIGHLY recommend them!

Myself and my daughter climbed Mt. Baker with Miyar Adventures via Easton Glacier route, Simon was our guide. The whole experience was epic in many ways. Simon's knowledge is excellent, I would trust him 100% in any situations that may come up on the mountain. We learned a lot and it was fun. The overall organization from Miyar was great (including informational emails from Jake and communication with Sandeep). Great company that I would choose again in a heartbeat.
