The Spir­it of Adventure

Shortly after completing the coveted, yet harrowing second ascent of Kilimanjaro’s Breach Icicle, Mountain Madness founders Scott Fischer and Wes Krause took pause. While they were relieved they’d survived the ascent of the vertical, detached pillar of ice, they also realized they were hooked. The following years saw them pursue even more adventures across the globe. They rode avalanches, walked among lions, were chased by grizzly bears, and made several first ascents. From this spirited partnership emerged Mountain Madness and a desire to share the challenge, beauty, and joy of mountaineering, climbing, trekking, and skiing with others. Their enduring mission: To offer the highest quality experience possible for beginner to advanced adventure seekers alike.
