- Preparations for the Mt. Rainier season are well underway. Our new rental gear is coming in and looks great! The Eureka N!ergy Tents are in and will be a great value to our Rainier climbers this year. A $30 tent rental definitely beats $80 for a hotel room down the road! Oh and for those of you still looking to climb Rainier this year we still have some dates available in May, early June and September.
- Our new Outdoor Research ‘guide gear’ has arrived with just enough time for embroidery before we send some of it with our guides to Everest and Cho Oyu later this month.
- Final Everest preparations are underway with last minute food & supply shopping and final packing for transport to Kathmandu and eventually onto Everest Base Camp. Check out the release on March 3 (below) about the Discovery Channel featuring IMG’s Everest Expedition.
- And climbers on our Mt. Whitney trips are getting a few more workouts in before their climbs in late March and into April. Note: we still have 3 spots available on our April 5-8 climb.
But busy days means happy climbers and that’s the business we’re in!
