      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

some friends and i from minnesota were out to mt adams this year on our own, would like some expert instruction (beyond reading freedom of the hills)before trying anything like baker, hood or rainier, and were thinking about classes/ascents with american alpine int'l, like their rainier prep class or guided ascents of ruth, sahale and/or shuksan. any thoughts?

aspencir,

I dont live in the PNW. I actually live in MN. I think American Alpine Institute , American Alpine Int'l, or RMI would be just fine. If you have a few people, rather than signing up for a summit climb with a random group of people, maybe ask if they will provide a personalized climb for you and your friends. I could be wrong, but Im guessing it wouldnt cost much more and you would have things tailored more toward your needs.

 

Have fun!

by the way, sorry, but i meant american alpine institute. and yeah, we plan to put our own group together, even if it's just 3 of us.

Not sure if you live in MN or WA. If MN then any of the above mentioned classes would be great. If WA, then I would highly reccomend the climbing course that I took this summer. It's at Pierce college in the Tacoma area, and probably the best deal in WA. 600$ for rainier or 400 for baker and adams, but there are a lot of classroom sessions so you really learn a lot. It's also not as time intensive as the mountaineers course.
