Summiting Rainier was only part of this experience. I was fortunate to have Nawang Gombu Sherpa, the first person to climb Everest twice, as my instructor at the RMI school. I was impressed with the knowledge and experience of the guides at RMI. The weather turned back other groups of climbers including the Army Climbing Team but we made it to the summit. We had 50+ mph winds on top! I would recommend RMI to anyone interested in climbing Rainier.
