    Guide: Washington, Alaska, International

    Adam was raised in the farmlands of southwest Idaho, where his love for nature began. His appreciation for the outdoors and adventure has taken him across North and South America, Asia, the South Pacific and Europe, exploring the ranges and peaks in the Himalaya, Patagonia, Alaska and New Zealand. After his first trip to the North Cascades, followed by his first visit to Yosemite, Adam decided to pursue climbing full time. When he is not in the mountains or traveling, Adam loves playing music, reading classic literature, experimenting in the culinary arts, and working on the family farm.
