Guide: Washington

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
