Sharon birchfield bio

Sharon Birchfield

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, a Wilder­ness First Respon­der, and has com­plet­ed the AMGA rock guide course, alpine guide course and is active­ly pur­su­ing fur­ther AMGA certifications.
