Ian Nicholson

The first thing you notice about Ian is his nev­er-end­ing stoke to be shar­ing the moun­tains with peo­ple, whether on rock, on glac­i­ers or on skis. His pas­sion to be out in the moun­tains has been known to spur peo­ple to greater heights. Ian is an inter­na­tion­al­ly licensed Alpine, Rock, and Ski moun­tain guide (IFMGA/UIAGM). Ian’s expe­ri­ence stems in part from hav­ing estab­lished over a half-dozen first ascents in his home range of the Cas­cades, as well as open­ing new routes in far­ther-off regions such as the Wadding­ton Range, Patag­o­nia and the Alas­ka Range. Ian has also authored a local climb­ing guide­book enti­tled Super­Topo: Wash­ing­ton Pass Climb­ing and is a writer for Out­doorGear­Lab and Climb­ing Mag­a­zine. Ian is AIARE Lev­el III cer­ti­fied, a Wilder­ness First Respon­der and is an AIARE Lev­el 1 and Lev­el 2 Course Leader, and a LNT Trainer.
