Hey everyone. I am a 24yr old from Arkansas. I love the outdoors and have great hiking, rock climbing/rope knowledge but have no experience with any glacier traverse or mountaineering. I am looking at using a guide service and have heard the registration will open in early September. I would rather save the money and try to find a group/lead partner with ample experience and knowledge of rainier and the whether that wouldn't mind taking up a newbie! I consider myself to be in great shape (hike, run, bike, triathlons) and would be in better shape by next summer. Safety is important to me but I know there are very experienced climbers out there that could help save me the $1300-$1800 for the guide service. Let me know if anyone is interested!
