For over 30 years my passion has been rock climbing, ice climbing and skiing all over the world. My love of the outdoors began in 1976 when I started rock climbing and skiing in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This new found love quickly evolved into a quest for bigger mountains, and ultimately led me to Taos, New Mexico where I started working as a ski patrol guide. Each spring I returned home to New Hampshire to spend summers honing my rock climbing skills at Cathedral Ledge and Cannon Cliff. After Taos, I helicopter-ski guided for two seasons in the Chugach Mountains of Alaska.
In 1994, I returned to New Hampshire to work as a rock and ice climbing guide. While doing this, I began training for AMGA guide certification and in 2001 achieved full certification with both the American Mountain Guides and International Federation of Mountain Guides. Now, in addition to my guide service, I work as an instructor, rock coordinator, and technical committee member with the AMGA.
Presently, I own and operate a year-round guide service, Mooney Mountain Guides, LLC, based out of New Hampshire and continue to climb and guide full time. In addition I lead custom climbing trips in Canada, Argentina, Bolivia, Mexico, and ski tours in destinations like the Haute Route in the Alps.
I love every moment I spend on the rock and ice. I am always looking forward to the next opportunity to share my energy and passion for the great outdoors with others.
