My wife has given me the green light to do some private guiding. I lead several volunteer Chemeketan climbs each year. However, if you have a need to climb a mountain that is not on my schedule or you wish to participate in a smaller, slower moving group, or need assistance carrying your gear, I may be able to help you accomplish your goal. I have crafted a generic fee schedule below. Fees are to be paid up front and do not guarantee a summit. If I have to cancel a trip due to poor weather or for any other reason, before the trip starts, then the clients will receive a full refund. If the trip is cancelled due to poor weather after it starts, or if the trip is cancelled by the clients before the trip begins, then I would retain $100 and return the remainder to the clients. If the clients end the trip at any time after the trip has begun, then no refund is given. Clients must supply their own climbing gear, food, etc. and provide their own transportation.
Private Guiding Fees
For example, a climb of Mt. Hood for two clients and two porters would cost $550. Without porters the cost is $350.
