Robert Fitzgerald

Hail­ing from Texas Hill coun­try, Robert was often found at the top of an oak tree as a child. In 2012 he moved to the San Juan Moun­tains where he gained a love for rock climb­ing. On his first climb­ing trip to Moab, Utah Robert expe­ri­enced his first hand jam and his life was changed for­ev­er. The love of the hand jam took him all over the coun­try, where he climbed in Zion and Yosemite and every­where in between. Once ful­ly immersed in the world of rock climb­ing, Robert start­ed to hear sto­ries of climb­ing in the moun­tains and became curi­ous. Expand­ing his vision from crag to moun­tain, Robert quick­ly fell in love with ski­ing and ice climb­ing. He began his pro­fes­sion­al guid­ing career in 2016 in the North Cas­cades and splits his time between Seat­tle, Wash­ing­ton and Tel­luride, Col­orado. Robert is cur­rent­ly an AMGA Appren­tice Rock Guide, Appren­tice Alpine Guide, and Appren­tice Ski Guide.
