Looking for private climbing training

Recommended Posts

New to the PNW and I’m wanting to learn alpine/ice/mountaineering. All courses by guiding companies are held during May-August probably due to risk. I’m looking for an experienced climber in those categories to teach me the ropes starting in October and work the way through higher during winter. I’ll pay for your time of course. Any help would be appreciated!

No, mostly due to the fact that alpine/ice/mountaineering is far more enjoyable to teach (and be taught) during these months.  You'll soon see why, but hiking during the Nov-April time frame should help with your appreciation for what the winter months bring to the mountains around here.

they may not run courses in the more unpredictable weather months, one can still hire private one on one guiding through those same companies.   gonna be expensive though.

Just go ahead and contact a reputable AMGA guide, like Martin Volken in North Bend, and see what he has to say.
