Ben Rademacher Golden State Guiding Guide

BEN RADEMACHER // AMGA APPRENTICE ALPINE GUIDE // WFR // GSG Guide

Ben has had a long time passion for the outdoors, starting at an early age hiking and hunting through the forests of Wisconsin. The Navy brought Ben out West where the mountains captivated his imagination.  Guiding for Ben has allowed him to combine his passion for teaching with his love for the mountains.  Over the last few years he has began to build his skills in the rock and alpine realm with an emphasis on big mountain exploration from the High Sierra, Cascades and into Squamish, British Columbia. He is a certified Wilderness First Responder, has completed his AIARE Level 1 and Avalanche rescue course as well as taken the AMGA SPI course and the Alpine Skills Course with a desire to continue into the AMGA Alpine Guide track. You can find Ben guiding Mt. Shasta for the season or behind the desk at his local climbing gym in San Diego, Vertical Hold.
