Our Approach

The Beta

Every business has a beginning and Chris's originated growing up in San Diego.  His parents cultivated a strong love for outdoor recreational pursuits and living life to the fullest.  He spent much time in the backcountry: climbing, backpacking, hiking, river rafting & snowboarding.  After sidetracking and co-founding a technology company for 15 years, it was time to get back to his roots.  He began enhancing his skillset pursuing the AMGA rock & alpine guiding track.

Our Story

The Approach

His passion and love for teaching all alpine, rock, ice & rope skills is readily apparent.  He guides trips in Alaska, Africa, the Rocky Mountains, Canada & the Sierra Nevada Range focusing on rock, alpine and ice climbing terrain.
