    At Sierra Mountian Guides we connect people to the mountains.  There is a variety of ways to get this done.  This July / August 2014 John B. came out  from Chicago to the Sierra to get connected to some of the best alpine crack climbing...

    For more than five  years now we have had the privilege of donating a day of climbing to the Wounded Warriors program.  ESDS (Eastern Sierra Disable Sports) has a spring program for the Wounded Warriors that provides incredible mountain opportunities for disabled veterans and their...

    One of the sayings I often find myself using is, "There is more than one way to skin a cat." Aside from the obvious negative imagery this may conjure up it does have real application in many of the activities that we offer at Sierra...

    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...

    Tom and his godson Michael stayed in one of the cabins at the Glacier Lodge the night before we started our climb.  I met them at their cabin in the morning and we enjoyed the cowboy coffee and delivered breakfast as we chatted about our...

     After our recovery day we decided to head back up to the Monchsjoch hut and give the Jungfrau a try.  The weather forcast didn’t look great but we thought if it didn’t snow too much we might get enough clear weather to give it a...

     After a hearty breakfast we boarded the Jungfrau Joch railway train that tunnels through the Eiger to over 11,000 ft.  There is always a strange mix of tourists and climbers on the train and this was no exception.  After an hour and forty minutes of...

     John arrived in Grindelwald planning on climbing the Jungfrau and the Eiger.  I met him at his Hotel (Eiger) the night before our trip was to begin.  Our first day led us up another narrow Swiss road to Hintersberg.  After a 45 minutes approach we...

    With yet another grim forecast, tired legs, and only a couple of days left in our trip we decided to get to lower elevation and the possibility of some rock climbing.  We drove from Sass Grund to Martigny.  Martigny is a French speaking part of...

     Yet another 3am start found us winding our way up the moraine in the dark following the reflector trail.  We got on the glacier and wound above the huge icefall to the couloir leading to the first col of the day.  Another beautiful sunrise greeted...
