Since the age of 15 climbing has been a driving force in Adam’s life. His passion for climbing has taken him around the globe climbing rock faces, frozen waterfalls and snowy lumps. In 2009 he obtained his internationally recognized guiding qualification (IFMGA) and now works full time as a professional mountain guide. A typical season involves around 150 days of guiding on rock, ice and skis. “I love blurring the lines between work and play. When I guide demanding routes, either on rock or in the Alpine, the types of climbs I would be happy to do with a friend, I know I have chosen the right profession!”

While loving the change of seasons, rock climbing is probably his favorite discipline, loving multi-pitch limestone routes in the Verdon, sandstone cracks in southern Utah and long granite climbs around Chamonix. He is also an equally dedicated Alpine climber and has done many classic and test-piece routes around the Alps.

Adam is married to an equally dedicated and qualified climber and together run a small guiding business: Adam splits his time living and working between Chamonix and Salt Lake City with his wife and daughter.
