Rental Gear
Items available for rent at IMG are indicated on the list below by an asterisk. Rental gear will be issued during the pre-climb meeting — there is no need to reserve it in advance. If you have special gear needs (e.g. very small/ very large feet), please contact us beforehand so we can better accommodate you.

When you meet for your climb, your guides will inspect your gear and help you decide exactly what to bring. This could vary slightly from the list below depending on the route and forecasted weather.

Please pay attention to the Special Notes at the end of the list.

If you have any questions or have special gear needs, please contact us at: (360) 569-2609 or This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need javascript enabled to view it
