Sharon attended college in Seattle and began climbing with The Mountaineers in 2010. She immediately fell in love with the sport and lifestyle, and has climbed rock, snow, and ice from Canada to Mexico to South America, but still believes the best alpine climbing can be found in the beautiful North Cascades. She enjoys instructing and introducing others to the mountains, and is excited to join the Madness. Sharon is an AMGA Certified Single Pitch Instructor, Apprentice Rock Guide, and a Apprentice Alpine Guide. Additionally, she is a Wilderness First Responder.
