Whittaker Mountaineering, located at Rainier BaseCamp just 6 miles outside of Mt. Rainier National Park, is the flagship retailer of Bight Gear. Peter founded the store in 1998 to simplify outfitting and identify the best mountain products for his clients. Today, Whittaker Mountaineering utilizes the vast knowledge and experience of the RMI Guide team to select top gear for their rental, demo, and retail store.
RMI Guides work and play on the world’s highest mountains where their gear is exposed to the most extreme conditions – over 10,000 days of combined use annually. Leveraging the collective knowledge of the RMI Guide Team, they select and direct you to top mountain gear. Guide Pick™ is outfitting simplified.
Whittaker Mountaineering has partnered with Bight Gear to offer a demo program for hikers and climbers on Mt. Rainier through their rental program. This program provides the opportunity to try select Bight Gear, rack up some vertical, and provide feedback to the Bight team as part of our testing program. It’s a great chance to touch it, feel it, sweat in it, and take it for a lap. Add your human-powered vertical to Bight’s quest to reach 100 Million vertical feet
