5+Years of ServiceGarrett Madison
Senior Guide: International, Mount Rainier

Garrett has been a professional mountain guide since 1999 and since then has guided Denali, Rainier, Mexico Volcanos, Ecuador Volcanos, high peaks in Peru, and the stone Sentinel of South America, Aconcagua. He was a leader and summiter on our successful 2009-2013 Mount Everest expeditions. In 2011, as Expedition Leader Garrett became the first person to successfully guide a client to the top of two 8000 meter peaks in less than 24 hours as a part of our Everest/Lhotse Expedition, this was the first expedition ever to achieve the Everest & Lhotse combination, a feat he repeated in 2013 to become the first person to do it twice. Garrett has also lived and traveled extensively in Europe, skiing and climbing in the Alps. Climbing Kilimanjaro or Vinson, Garrett is at home in the mountain environment, & appreciates the priviledge of being able to climb. Garrett has been on several other expeditions to the Himalaya such as Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu. Garrett is busy in the summer months devoting much of his time to working in the field with our Rainier program.
