Guide: Washington, Alaska

Andrew grew up in Washington State with great access to what the PNW has to offer. In college he found there was no better workout than what the mountains could provide and he was instantly hooked. It didn’t take long for him to decide to combine climbing with his love for travel. After spending several years honing his climbing skills overseas on four continents he is happy to call the northwest his home again. When he is not climbing he enjoys mountain biking, riding motorcycles, and pretending to speak Spanish. He is often found spending the winter months searching for vitamin D with his dog Sol. Andrew holds a degree in Earth and Space Sciences from University of Washington

  • Gear Review: Fozzils Bowls

    By Mike Hawkins It has been a long day – one of the most demanding climbing days you have ever experienced. Your legs are wrecked. Your back is sore and you have small bruises on your hips from your hipbelt. You have sunscreen caked into every nook and cranny, but even that didn’t keep you […]

  • Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
