Women's Climbing and Mountaineering Training Programs with International Mountain Guides

The female guides at IMG created our women's programs because we want to help you achieve your goals in the mountains. Whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced climber, want to climb rocks or volcanoes, want a guided climb or an in-depth skills seminar, or you have a more specific goal in mind, we can help you make it happen! Our programs offer a supportive environment for you to challenge yourself, build your competence and confidence in climbing, and have a blast on an unforgettable adventure with other like-minded women.

Check out the links below for more information on our scheduled climbs and seminars, and for details on designing a custom program.

Please contact IMG with any questions, or if you would like to be put in touch with one of our female guides. We look forward to meeting you and sharing a great adventure.

  • Mt. Baker Women's »

    Climb Description

    Contact us to organize a custom women's climb of Mt. Baker.

    At 10,781', Baker is an ideal first ascent of a Cascade volcano and an excellent primer for Rainier and beyond. The program will focus on the mental aspects of mountaineering and introduce (or refresh) basic skills such as cramponing, ice axe self-arrest, and rope team travel. Depending on group interest, additional topics may include belaying and rappelling, glacier navigation and route-finding, snow anchor building, fixed line ascension, and team crevasse rescue. All in a supportive, cohesive environment with unparalleled beauty in all directions!

  • Mt. Shuksan Women's »

    Climb Description

    Contact us to organize a custom women's climb of Mt. Shuksan.

    We will hike through a dense forest and subalpine meadows to our camp in the alpine zone with amazing views of the surrounding peaks. We will train you in critical mountaineering skills including glacier travel and crevasse rescue, then we will make a summit attempt that includes a roped glacier approach to the summit pyramid, which is 600' of easy to moderate belayed rock climbing to the top.

I recently climbed Mount Rainier with three female IMG guides, and I was absolutely blown away. They're professional, supportive, strong, and fun. I hadn't thought it would make a difference for me to climb with other women (instead of with men), but it turned out to be a highlight of my adventure.

People, especially women, ask me all the time: 'Why do you like to climb mountains?' IMG's all-women's climb put me in touch with women who already know the answer to that.
