Sam Hennessey
Guide: Mount Rainier, Cascades

Sam was born and raised in Port Angeles, WA, and has spent much of his life climbing and skiing in the Cascades and Olympics. These days, he spends his time trying to explore the west via climbing, from big walls in Yosemite to ice and mixed climbs in Montana and Wyoming and rock routes wherever he can find them. When not climbing or skiing, he enjoys distance running, reading, catching fish, and hanging out in the woods.
