Nick Mullan
Guide: Mount Rainier

Although Nick sometimes claims he's a Pacific Northwest native, he actually grew up just outside Los Angeles, CA. It wasn't as bad as it sounds, though. That just meant he got to develop his rock and alpine climbing skills in the natural playgrounds of Joshua Tree National Park and the magnificent Sierra Nevada Mountain Range. After a number of years guiding on Mt. Shasta and climbing in the Cascades, he now calls Oregon his home. When not guiding or climbing, Nick is a mediocre mountain biker and an even worse skier, but he makes up for it with extreme levels of enthusiasm! And, if you think Nick is a rock star in the mountains, just wait until you hear him play the banjo!
