Seth originally learned about rock climbing in college and immediately fell in love. In fact, his college offered a degree, “Expeditionary Studies,” that allowed you to major in things like rock climbing, scuba diving, kayaking and back country skiing while emphasizing being prepared with medical training. After successfully graduating with a major in rock climbing and a secondary in back-country skiing he began travelling west, into the mountains, furthering his skills and experience in both the climbing and skiing industries, travelling to places like Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Red Rock and many more, he finds great pleasure in introducing people to what he most whole-heartedly enjoys – rock climbing and skiing. Teaching kids climbing classes and guiding private groups outdoors in the summer and instructing people on how to become stronger skiers have become both a personal interest and professional career. An easy-going personality paired with a professional attitude makes him a great asset to beginning your climbing career!
