Born in Rhode Island, Nate grew up adventuring in the small but rugged mountains of the Northeast. Since then, he has followed his passion for climbing all over the world to Patagonia, Thailand, India and the farthest reaches of Northern Canada. He has been guiding professionally for 8 years. He now spends his summers in Index, WA and the rest of his year guiding in Joshua Tree, CA. Nate continues to find inspiration in the mountains and loves sharing these experiences with others. When he's not working you can find him climbing or ski touring in the Sierra Nevadas, Cascades, and Rockies. Nate is an AMGA Certified Rock Guide and AIARE Level 1.
