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.

    Seminar Description

    Join us August 2-7, 2019 for our all-women's 6-day mountaineering seminar and summit climb of Mount Shuksan.

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 tippy 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.
