Peak 7 Adventures

Mountaineering/Rock Climbing/Backpacking Guide

May - August 2018 • Spokane, WA

What I liked

The staff are all cool and fun people with a lot of backcountry and climbing knowledge. I learned a lot about the professional skills required for guiding people in summit attempts, extended backcountry travel and rock climbing. Along with this I learned a ton of skills for personal recreation of mountain climbing and rock climbing. Though they ask for volunteers they provide housing, food, and pay for guiding certifications/training.

What I wish was different

Being paid would have been nice but overall the experience you receive and the work environment more than compensates for the money.


Guiding can can be a hard and demanding job with lots of work days and very, very minimal off days but overall working for Peak 7 is so worth it for anyone wanting to pursue outdoor endeavors professionally in any format such as mountaineering, backpacking, rock climbing, or white water rafting.
