A proud Seattle native, Chris has been enjoying the Cascade Mountains literally all his life — his mother, an avid hiker, kept it up while pregnant with Chris. After graduating from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA in 2010 Chris returned to the Pacific Northwest to rock, ice, and alpine climb both in the Cascades and throughout the American West and Canada. When in Seattle he is a route setter and instructor at Stone Gardens Climbing Gym. A fascination with climbing ice prompted a move to Bozeman, Montana where he currently resides climbing, skiing, and enjoying a less urban lifestyle.
