The Spirit of Adventure
Shortly after completing the coveted, yet harrowing second ascent of Kilimanjaro’s Breach Icicle, Mountain Madness founders, Scott Fischer and Wes Krause, took pause. Relieved they survived the ascent of this vertical, detached pillar of ice, they realized that they were hooked. Over the years they were chased by grizzly bears, walked among lions, rode avalanches, and made first ascents as they traveled across the globe on the pursuit of adventure. From this partnership emerged Mountain Madness and the passion to share the challenge, beauty, and joy of climbing, trekking and adventure.Their mission — to offer the highest quality experience for beginner to advanced mountaineers and trekkers alike.
