RYAN HARTEGAN // AMGA SPI // WFR // GSG FOUNDER

Golden State Guiding founder, AMGA Single Pitch Instructor, Wilderness First Responder, AIARE Level 1 and Rescue Course graduate Ryan Hartegan has an affinity for climbing, the places it takes you, and the memories created along the way. Ryan has been climbing for 12 years all over California from the tough quartz monzonite desert granite of Joshua Tree, to the lichen streaked granite of the High Sierra and Yosemite, to the pumping sport routes in Owen's River Gorge, to splitter days up on Tahquitz and everything in between. Ryan enjoys all disciplines of climbing but his heart lies with alpine starts, long approaches and high elevation gains mixed with grueling days out and long routes, to put it shortly, the Sierra.
