Peter is a Northwest native hooked on the green forests and snow-capped, rocky peaks of the Cascades. I enjoy long bushwacks to uncrowded peaks, summiting at sunrise and good coffee in the mountains. This will be my third season guiding for Alpine Ascents. I predominately guide on Mt Rainier, climbing the Emmons and Dissapointment Cleaver routes, but I also like to venture into the North Cascades for Mt Baker summit climbs and mountaineering courses. In the summer I’m a volcano climber by trade and passion. In the fall I chase the sun and rock climb as much as possible, but the long winter of the Northwest might be my favorite season and I usually ski over 100 days.

Outstanding program (as have been all of my Alpine Ascents climbs). Our guide has excellent leadership skills. Our assistant was careful not to overstep his role as assistant guide but I am confident he will be a strong leader when he is lead guide.
