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.
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.
Chris Walden is certified as an AMGA SPI Rock Instructor, Wilderness First Responder, Avalanche L1, CPR, Advanced Mountaineering, & Advanced Open Water Diver.
