Mountain Guiding


Climbing on the Devils Tower, WY

I’ve worked has an outdoor educator for over 9 years and have been guiding professionally in Colorado for 5 years.  I am also a certified rock climbing guide through the American Mountain Guide Association.

If your interested in getting out and exploring the mountains don’t hesitate to ask.  I have experince guiding multipitch rock and ice climbing, winter alpine climbs and my personal favorite backcountry skiiing.  Check out my blog for some inspiration and give me a shout to talk about creating a trip right for you.   You can reach me at bmarkhart(a)

I work with a variety of companies around Colorado and Washington for permitting and insurance.

Why Hire a Guide?

Not everyone can become and expert in everything.  While, you are likely much better at your chosen profession than I am, I am likely going to know a bit more about the mountains than you are.

Not only have a benefited from the knowledge accumulated over the decades by long time IFMGA certified guides but I spend a ton of time in the mountains.

Now I want to pass that experience on.  My job is to craft custom trips tailored to your goals that provide a challenging but safe experience.  Whether you just want to get out and climb a 14er for the first time or take your rope work on multi-pitch ice to the next level, I can create a trip for you.
