Rock, Ice and Mountaineering. Guiding and Instruction.

Welcome to Winter 2015/2016. Cathedral Mountain Guides is a small crew of professional climbing guides based in North Conway, New Hampshire. This is our favorite season, and we’re fired-up to share the beauty and excitement of winter climbing and mountaineering in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Whether you’re chasing an elusive test-piece, or putting on crampons or snowshoes for the very first time, we pride ourselves in knowing how to tailor the experience to make for a memorable, successful, and safe climbing adventure.

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
– William Blake

This winter, in addition to offering a full spectrum of technical ice climbing and mountaineering courses and private climbs, we’re proudly continuing the “Ladies Only” weekend series taught by our own Alexa Siegel, Janet Wilkinson and guest female guides, as well as teaming up with some awesome organizations to provide events for college kids and military veterans. What all our programs have in common is that they are staffed by top-notch professionals who are also friendly, inspiring people to learn from.

Please contact us, we’re eager to help plan the climbing adventure that’s right for you.
– Your friends at Cathedral Mountain Guides
