Meeting Facilities

Whittaker Mountaineering is the place to find everything you need for your mountaineering adventure on Mt. Rainier. 

The Whittaker Mountaineering staff is lead by Peter and Erika Whittaker who truly have grown up in the mountains. Their love for the mountains has been passed on to all of us at Whittaker Mountaineering.

Having Mount Rainier in our backyard, gives us countless opportunities to wear and test the gear we sell on a daily basis. Our staff has spent many nights on the mountain and would love the opportunity to share our experiences with those who are looking to climb Mount Rainier or other mountains around the world.

The Whittaker Mountaineering Guide Team is comprised of the world's best professional mountain guides and climbers. Collectively, they have more than 2,500 Mt. Rainier summits, 60 Denali summits, 30 Mt. Vinson summits, and 30 Mt. Everest summits. We enlist their expertise to narrow down the field of gear choices to offer you the best available and the same gear they trust their lives with in the high mountains.
We rent a complete and wide variety of climbing gear, as well as apparel, camping and backpacking gear. You may shop online, by phone, or visit our shop at Rainier base camp in Ashford, WA.
