IMG, not RMI

Response to Rainier with RMI

 

My buddy and I summitted Rainier with International Mountain Guides (IMG) in 2011. We preferred their itineraries with a night at Muir and a "night" (getting up at midnight for the summit day) at Ingraham Flats. The extra night makes a big difference in acclimation and improves the odds of a successful summit.

Their guides were super and we lucked out with the weather. Low clouds when we left the parking lot at Paradise but we were above them at Muir. The next day, it cleared out and by sunrise on our summit day (at about 14,000' on the upper slopes), we could see all the way to local ground level. Spectacular views from the top!
