John on Temple Crag 

John B. Sun Ribbon Arete- Temple Crag 

I met up with Taylor and John at our Bishop office to do a gear check and packing session prior to our weekend journey to Temple Crag. Both Taylor and John have climbed with SMG for some time and were well prepared for a big adventure. Taylor and Howie planned to climb Darkstar while John and I would be on the stunning Sun Ribbon Ar�te. Darkstar is rated Grade V 5.10b and Sun Ribbon is a Grade IV 5.10a....Read more on our BLOG

Alaska Ski
 This year's AK ski adventure was "all time." I think that is the modern lingo for "best ever." Aside from the fact that we skied perfect snow on all but 1 out of 7 mountain days, numerous descents in the 40-45 degree range on rarely (if ever) travelled, gigantic scale glaciers; and aside from the great company, excellent food, fine lodge hospitality, and breathtaking scenery, we did all of it in the heart of the most incredible and remote ski mountaineering range in the world - the Wrangells....

Wounded Warriors:  

Every summer for the past six years Sierra Mountain Guides has proudly worked with Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra on their Wounded Warriors program. The Wounded Warriors are all veterans with some sort of injury and they come from all over the country to participate in this summer program. We take folks with visual impairments, amputations, spinal cord injuries, and other neuromuscular and orthopedic conditions out climbing. The Disabled Sports staff are awesome, funny and super helpful and the men and women who have served our country are absolutely the salt of the earth.
Trail Runner Magazine:
It is cold. The snow is blowing sideways. Blake Herrington and I are leading the pack, struggling toward Muir Pass from the west. We have passed the last of the alpine lakes in California's Evolution Basin, and are now ascending to the only place along the Pacific Crest and John Muir trails where you can't see a tree or a bush....To read the rest of the story check out our BLOG.
