Dylan Cembalski

Guide: Washington, Alaska, International

Dylan was born and raised on a small farm in Montana. His love for the outdoors has led him to climb throughout the western US, sea kayak in Norway, ski patrol in WA state, row boats down the Grand Canyon, run sled dogs in Sweden, and travel extensively throughout Chile and Argentina. As a 3rd generation photographer, he carries the extra camera weight on most trips and you can find his photos spread across many mediums. When not guiding, he works as a field engineer for seismic and earth science research throughout the western US and Alaska.

  • 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 […]
