Peter Moore

Guide: Washington, Alaska, International

Peter is a Northwest native hooked on the green forests and snow-capped, rocky peaks of the Cascades. He enjoys long bushwacks to uncrowded peaks, summiting at sunrise and good coffee in the mountains. He has been guiding for Alpine Ascents since 2011. While he predominately guides on Mt Rainier and Denali, he has been known to venture into the North Cascades for Mt Baker summit climbs and mountaineering courses and to Argentina’s Aconcagua. In the summer, he’s a volcano climber by trade and passion. In the fall, he chases the sun and tries to rock climb as much as humanly possible. During the long winter of the Northwest (his favorite season) he patrols at Mt. Hood Meadows and usually logs 100+ days on his sticks. He lives in Hood River, Oregon with his lovable canine companion, Mr. Morrison.

    It’s Not Awkward, It’s Reality As adults, we’ve got our bathroom & “private part” habits down. We know how to keep ourselves comfortable, clean, and efficient. But what happens when we step into the backcountry for the day? For several nights? For a month-long expedition? For those heading into the backcountry with a female anatomy, […]

  • 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 […]
