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.
