Tommy Lindley

Guide: Washington

Tommy grew up camping, hiking, and playing hockey with his two brothers in Oklahoma, but he found his true passion for heights and knot-tying as a rock climber in college in the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge. Throughout college, Tommy traveled the western United States and Canada, developing his rock and alpine skills. After receiving his BS in Parks and Recreation Management, Tommy traded granite for sandstone and worked as a climbing and canyoneering guide in the vast slot canyons around Moab, Utah. This is where he found his passion for showing others the mountains and otherwise inaccessible places. Now, Tommy loves to work as a guide during the summers while pursuing his M.Ed and instructing university classes as a graduate teaching assistant. Through experiences in academia, he understands the power of the outdoor classroom and looks for opportunities to teach others just how amazing our natural world is.

    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 […]
