Connor Chilcott

Guide: Washington, Alaska

Connor was born July 2nd, 1993 in the warmth of Southern California. After spending years growing up around the ocean and rocks, Connor was first introduced to the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. His love for mountains was realized following a winter ascent of Mt Whitney, and he found that challenging his physical and mental boundaries made him feel both alive and at home atop the majestic snow covered peaks. Having already been an avid rock climber, Connor fell in love with alpine and ice climbing. After years of guiding and climbing in California, Connor moved to Colorado to pursue a career guiding and ice climbing. His climbing resume spans from Yosemite to Chamonix. Connors’s focus has now switched to big glaciated peaks and guiding people to summits around the world.
