Carlyn is a lifelong resident of Colorado with a deep love of the mountains. Her adventures while growing up included skiing and hiking. She began rock climbing six years ago in order to access exposed and rarely visited mountainous terrain. Her passion is alpine climbing, but you can also find her putting up as many traditional climbing routes as she can get her hands on.
She has dedicated herself to sharing mountain craft as a guide and loves to see her students learning to effectively and safely in challenging terrain. Carlyn has built a strong teaching background with a Masters of Science in Outdoor Education and has coached adventure based sports since 2012.
Carlyn is continuously studying technical rope systems and snow science, and hopes to one day add these fields to her teaching repertoire. "Climbing brings me to a state of deep connection with both the environment and my fellow climbers. Everyone deserves a chance to attain that joy!"
