Mount Rainier is a famous volcano located 87 km to the southeast of Seattle (Washington). Rising to 4027 meters, it is the highest peak in the Cascade Range. This course is designed to train participants to climb Mount Denali and/or to learn winter mountaineering skills.

In addition to joining this course, it is ideal to do one or two summit ascents prior to embarking in the adventure of climbing Denali.

In the early spring the risk of avalanche or bad weather is high. If it is the case, we will modify the program doing low traverses instead of summit attempts.
