Tomorrow starts the AMGA Rock Guide Exam here in Red Rocks, Nevada. I’m excited and a little nervous, but mostly psyched for the all of the opportunities and support that I have had throughout this process.

A huge thank you to my parents Mark and Jutta for all of their support and especially my partner Sarah for being a patient belayer and nothing but positive while I disappear into the suburbs of Vegas to a house filled with 12 other guides.

Speaking of support. Checkout a belated post over on the Osprey Packs Blog that I wrote about my experience on an AMGA program in Chamonix!

Off to the pre-Exam meeting,
