2 climbers $1,275
Dates:July 1-3, 2024

Custom dates are available in July and August
Location:North Cascades National Park

A climb to the pyramid-shaped summit of Mount Shuksan is not to missed! It’s one of our guides’ favorite trips to lead. The adventure starts with a beautiful hike through old growth forests and the high alpine meadows of Shannon Ridge.  Day one ends at one of the most stunning high camps in the North Cascades!

On day two, we give the summit a try.  The Sulphide Glacier offers easy travel, from a beautiful position high on the glacier, to the base of the summit pyramid.  Easy rock climbing in our mountain boots leads to a stellar summit.  A mix down climbing, and a possible rappel, gets us back to the glacier, and the comfort of camp.

Countless climbers who have summited Mt Hood with us, come right back and sign up for this climb in the same season to keep their summer climbing going.

"I am very happy with my TMG experience. The guides were professional, personable, and extremely concerned about safety. . . I absolutely give highest marks to these guys. If you don't have much Alpine experience, or just want the security of seasoned veterans guiding you up this mountain, then I strongly recommend you sign up with them. Thanks, guys, for a great experience!!"

"What a fantastic experience gaining the summit of a mountain we've gazed on from Portland for 25 years! . . . We learned a great deal, had a ton of fun, felt in very capable hands, and had the reward of summiting on a beautiful clear day. The value of being with a professional, certified, guide and guiding organization was evident throughout. Kudos to the TMG team who were responsive, supportive, and fun to work with every step of the way."

"We booked 2-day overnight program on Mt. Hood with Timberline Mountain Guides. Our guides were great, . . super friendly and reputable. The program did not go as planned due to inclement weather but we still had fun and good experience. The guides were definitely flexible and provided guidance during the trip. I would recommend going with them if it's your first climbing trip on Mt. Hood for sure."
