Nate Goodwin

Nate was born and raised in West­ern Wash­ing­ton and began climb­ing soon after get­ting his dri­ver’s license. He cut his teeth in the Cas­cades while in high school and moved to Boze­man, MT to attend Mon­tana State Uni­ver­si­ty where he con­tin­ued to pur­sue rock and ice climb­ing as well as back­coun­try ski­ing. His climb­ing has tak­en him through­out the west US, the Cana­di­an Rock­ies, the Cen­tral Alas­ka Range as well as Argenti­na and Chilean Patag­o­nia. Nate has also com­plet­ed first ascents of alpine and rock routes in North and South Amer­i­ca. He holds an AIARE Lev­el 1 and Wilder­ness First Respon­der cer­tifi­cates, and is an AMGA Appren­tice Rock Guide and LNT Train­er. His favorite aspect of guid­ing is see­ing oth­ers devel­op the skills and tech­niques they need to push their climb­ing to greater heights and tech­ni­cal lev­els. When not guid­ing or climb­ing Nate is pur­su­ing a nurs­ing degree in Mis­soula, MT.
