Pete Lardy
Guide: Mount Rainier

Pete has climbed in the Himalaya, Andes, Alaska Range, Cascades and the Rockies since 1997 and enjoys sharing his experience and knowledge with other climbers around the world. He calls Colorado Springs his home, where he owns Pikes Peak Alpine School and enjoys alpine rock, multi-pitch ice and high alpine mountaineering. For Pete, the life of climbing fosters lasting friendships like no other. "It's the best way to come away from a day with a sense of accomplishment."
