Peter Moore

Guide: International, Washington, Alaska

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.

  • What are Glacier Glasses?

    We are often asked why we specifically require “Glacier Glasses” on our climbs, rather than regular sports sunglasses. The answer to this questions is best understood with a bit of background knowledge regarding the effects of a high altitude snowy environment on the solar radiation to which you are exposed. Altitude and Solar Radiation Lots […]
