International Man of Mystery...

My photo
I grew up in the Boston area and lived there until my junior year in high school when I attended the Mountain School, a semester program run by Milton Academy in Vershire, VT. I then attended Colby College in Waterville, ME. During my time at Colby I studied anthropology, spent a semester in Northeast India, and became fluent in Nepali. Before I became a guide I earned my black belt in kenpo karate and taught karate for 6 years. I began guiding in college on the rocky coast of ME with Acadia Mountain Guides and on ice at the International Mountain Climbing School in NH. After graduating I took to the highway and drove from ME to WA for the big mountains and glaciers. I spend my winters in lovely Ouray, CO guiding in the famous ice park. I am currently working towards becoming a certified guide through the American Mountain Guides Association. I live, work and play in the hills and on the rocks. On the rocks both literally and, well, with ice.

Mount Baker

From Schrieber Meadows to the railroad grade to theRoman Wall, the Easton Glacier route on Mount Baker has many features that are a joy to climb. For folks that are new to mountaineering, to climbing on glaciers, to ice axes, crampons and climbing ropes, there is probably no better climb than the Easton Glacier on Mount Baker. The climb features steep snow, big crevasses and phenomenal views with out the strain of high altitude found above 10,000 ft on other peaks.

Standing at 10,781 feet Mount Baker is a springboard into a world of mountaineering on the earth's great peaks from Rainier to Denali and beyond.
