@mayarch07 learning the #toolsofthetrade on day one of last week's #mtbaker #mountaineering course. We went on to tag the #summit of #GargoylePeak, #ShermanPeak, #GrantPeak, and the Summit Dome. Props to Josh and Ashwin for putting in the time to learn the skills and practicing to build experience and become better climbers. @amga1979 @proguidingservice #ifmga #glacier #alpineclimbing #climbskiexplorerepeat

Guides day off in the #chamonix valley. Here IFMGA guide and AMGA instructor team member Eric Larson enjoys his day off. What climbing plans do you have this weekend on your days off? 📷@jonathon.spitzer

Not a bad spot for an SPI Course! 📸: @climbacadia

I can't think of a better site to teach and practice top managed climbs than #ottercliffs! A big shout out to this crew for their commitment to continuing education and for making last weekends @amga1979 #SPI course tons of fun!

Fall factor 1 with 80kg mass onto a fixed point belay with a Munter Hitch. The fixed point hit 2.3 kn and the belayer had no problem holding the load.

As an IFMGA guide there are endless opportunities to work with other guides from around the world. It is these opportunities that help deepen our skill set as a guide while also promoting continuing education among different nationalities. Recently AMGA IT member Jonathon Spitzer teamed with IFMGA guide and Ecuadorian mtn guide instructor Jose Luis Peralvo on a #volcano climbing trip in Ecuador. Here Jose Luis short ropes a climber towards the summit of Illiniza Norte 16,818ft. 📷 @jonathon.spitzer #neverstoplearning #guidelife

The summit is not nearly as important as the process, but it sure is nice when it all comes together and we do get the opportunity to stand on our objectives. Thanks to all the participants of the recent @amga1979 Alpine Guide Course for your professionalism, openness to learning, and a high level of stoke, it was really great to observe each of you progress throughout the course. Thanks also to my co-workers and fellow instructors @pormondo @mtnrise and @chrissimmonsguiding for your leadership and dedication to training the next generation of Alpine Guides, it was sincerely an honor and privilege to work with you. 📸: @mikepoborsky

Yesterday the clouds broke and the sun shined and we #climbed! It is great to see these aspiring guides start to pull everything they had learned in this @amga1979 #alpineguidecourse and start applying it. The Tetons are certainly an alpine climber's #dreamcometrue and we had an amazing morning. #watchtower #fairsharetower #disappointmentpeak #tetonrange @grandtetonnps #jacksonwyoming

Sean learning how to kiwi coil and short rope his fellow students on the Boulder RGC. Having fun with @jay__ct and @climbsean @scpclimbers Nice work guys!!!
