Biography


Aaron is a pioneer ice climber. He hikes through and flies over the mountains of Wyoming to scout out some of the newest and sickest ice falls in the country. All of his explorations and pioneering has generously paid off with nearly 100 first ascents. His knack for exploring comes from his history of hunting and hiking with his father in California. Aaron was introduced to climbing after he moved to Colorado where a co-worker took him out climbing for the first time. It only took one throw of the axe and he was hooked for life. Aaron lives a double-life. In the winter he climbs up the waterfalls and in the summer he paddles down them. Aaron likes to be the first to do a lot of things, and nabbing first descents in his kayak is one of them. So be it frozen or melted, he can always be found at the waterfalls.
