I teach classes of all levels from complete beginner to advanced trad and big wall classes. I teach classes in Yosemite National Park through Yosemite Mountaineering School and in the Eastern Sierra through Whitney Base Camp and Climbing. In each class I follow a curriculum that I've designed based on years of experience while keeping classes flexible and dynamic in order to suit students' individual needs.

Girls on Granite - Learn the basics of outdoor climbing with other women in this two day course.

Gym to Crag - Acquire the skills you need to take your climbing outside.

Lead and Multi-Pitch - Learn to move safely and efficiently with your partner on vertical terrain.

Introduction to Big Wall Climbing - This class goes over the skills necessary to climb grade V and VI walls.

Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned outdoor climber, I can customize a day of climbing that suits your level. I offer a unique experience using teachable moments on climbs to help clients work towards becoming self sufficient climbers. I have climbed all over the world and can cater trips specific to the adventure you're looking for. Contact me for more information about guided climbs in Yosemite, the Eastern Sierra and around the world.

I am a certified Rock Guide through the American Mountain Guide Association and have my Wilderness First Responder through NOLS.
