About Us

  • CATHEDRAL MOUNTAIN GUIDES is a New Hampshire-based guide service...

    founded in 2008 by American Mountain Guide Association certified guide Bayard Russell, Jr. and now run in partnership with local guide, accomplished alpinist and Piolet d’Or Recipient, Freddie Wilkinson. We are proud to include Alexa Siegel, Michael Wejchert, Janet Wilkinson and Erik Eisele as staff guides.

Cathedral Mountain Guides seeks to provide safe, high-quality private technical climbing and mountaineering experiences in the White Mountains and Northeast region. The safety and well being of both clients and guides is our first priority, every day we operate. Our guides include some of the Northeast’s best climbers, but more importantly, they share a laid back, positive approach to climbing and teaching developed through years of sharing a rope with one another. Cathedral Mountain Guides offers unique single source access to an incredible wealth of experience.
