Guide: Alps

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. In addition to Tim guiding technical peaks around the world he enjoys sharing the outdoors on trekking adventures. Tim specializes in leading treks in the Alps and has led a dozen Haute Route treks and many variations.

Still traveling the world Tim shares his time mostly between the European Alps and his young daughter in Scotland.

This is a very strong program. The food was excellent. On the climbing side, the guides were excellent. Everything was well organized. Equipment, transportation, etc. were never a problem. I can’t think of any weakness or criticisms.
