Skyward Mountaineering

Skyward Mountaineering is a boutique mountain guide service run by Vince Anderson and Steve House. Headquartered in the San Juan Mountains of Western Colorado we specialize in preparing alpinists for off-the-beaten-track climbs and have a track record of safely guiding difficult ascents of classics like the Eiger’s North Face and the Moonflower Buttress on Mt.Hunter. We also offer coaching and training for alpine climbing and ski alpinism.
