Rick has lived in Alaska for over 30 years and has guided for just as long. He's explored many of the state's mountains, including a Denali summit attempt at age 50.
His resourcefulness and knowledge of the backcountry make him a great person to get lost with. His beard knows all.
Clay moved to Alaska from Michigan in 2006 and has made it his home by conquering its landscapes, including two summits of Denali.
After years of packing and assisting, Clay earned his registered guide license in 2012. Success is his middle name.
