Brent Langlinais
Guide: Washington

Brent is an impassioned adventurer with a lifelong love of wild places. His enthusiasm for climbing began in the late 1990s, during his freshman year at the University of Alaska, and he has since amassed an extensive and varied resume of personal and guided expeditions throughout the US and abroad. Brent's passion for mountain adventure has taken him to 25 states, Canada, Mexico, Peru, Argentine Patagonia, Chilean Patagonia, Aconcagua, Denali, New Zealand, India, and Nepal, and his areas of expertise included technical rock and ice climbing, high-altitude alpine climbing, wilderness leadership and emergency medicine. He is also an accomplished public speaker, photographer, long distance cyclist, skier, whitewater kayaker, dual sport rider, sailor, and Critical Care Registered Nurse. Brent began working with Alpine Ascents in 2006, and between trips he can be found either traveling, working as an Intensive Care Unit Nurse or living aboard his recently restored Catalina 27 sailboat, the 'S.V. Tomorrow'.
