      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   11/10/22

      Huge thank you to Bellingham based The American Alpine Institute for being our sole sponsor, taking care of our hosting costs,  which is our biggest cost.  @Jason_Martin  of AAI reached out to me, and really wanted to support the forums.  They have supported us in the past,  and now stepped up to support us again.  They will be our sole sponsor for 6 months.   Big time, and they are a local climbing related company to boot!

Where can I rent some gear for Rainier this summer?

I have some friends coming out from CO this summer for a trip to Rainier and a couple will need gear (boots, crampons, axe, etc.). Are harness' available?

REI.

Or RMI if you're using their services. If not, r-u sure your friends are qualified if they don't have any of this stuff? Don't ever underestimate Rainier!

You can rent general mountaineering equipment through REI in Seattle when you arrive, but their store hours will make for a late arrival at the mountain the day you pick up the goods....

You can also support the little guys by going to Feathered Friends (across the street from REI), Marmot (in Bellevue) or Backpacker's Supply in Tacoma - depending on where you're starting from. Each store also carries a different line of plastic boots in their rental departments if you have a preference.
