Getting back to guiding on Mt Rainier this past month has been a great boost for everyone at IMG after months of boring isolation. A big shout out to our hard working guides and staff, our fantastic IMG climbers, and the National Park Service for working to re-start climbing at Mt Rainier. It makes us feel hopeful again that there will be some more mountains in our future!
Speaking of which, we are now working on our 2021 Denali season planning. While many of the 2021 expedition slots have already been taken by 2020 climbers who rescheduled, we do have a few slots left on our May 14 and May 18 programs, and they are going fast. These mid-May departures typically make their summit bids in late May/early June which is normally a great time to climb! If you are a physically strong climber with solid skills (cramponing, glacier travel, crevasse rescue, cold weather experience, etc) then we hope you will consider joining us. Our Denali program director Nicole Sims is happy to discuss the trip with you in more detail, so please get in touch!
