Guide: Mount Rainier

Born and raised in Oregon, Matthew learned to climb on the mountains and crags of the Pacific Northwest. While completing a B.S. in Environmental Economics, Matthew was the Eastern Oregon University Outdoor Program Director where he introduced students to mountaineering, rock climbing, and other outdoor activities. Matthew has rock climbed across the west including areas such as the Enchantments, Leavenworth, Smith Rocks, City of Rocks, Red Rocks, and Joshua Tree. When not climbing, Matthew enjoys cooking, and more importantly eating good food while spending time with his lady.
