Tim began guiding in the mountains in 1996. From his hometurf in the North Cascades he has since traveled and ran expeditions on all seven continents spending a lot of time in both north and south America, Antarctica and now calling Chamonix, in the French Alps his home.
Highlights from the last few decades have been numerous ascents of Denali in Alaska, skiing from the summit of Mt Vinson in Antarctica, climbing the north face of the Eiger, climbing the New Dawn wall of El Capitan and the Walker spur of the Grande Jorrases, paragliding from the summits of Aig Whymper of Chimborazo and Mt Blanc and sailing/ skiing the waters of Svalbard in the frozen north to name a few adventures.
Still traveling the world Tim shares his time mostly between the European Alps and his young daughter in Scotland.
I enjoyed it immensely. I came back equal parts exhausted and elated, which is pretty much a perfect result for an adventure of this sort. Everybody in the group summited on the same day. Our team’s interpersonal chemistry was especially warm and supportive, even though we had not climbed together before
