About Clancy Nelson

Clancy grew up in the High Sierra, where he learned to climb in the ’90s. Granite peaks are still his favorite. He also spent sunny days on the splitter walls around Moab, Utah, pulling loose blocks out of the Sandia mountains in New Mexico, and teaching others to hand jam in Joshua Tree and Tahquitz. He thinks the quartzite around northwest Montana is pretty fun, too. Clancy is an apprentice alpine and ski guide through the AMGA. He’s a WFR and Leave No Trace instructor. During the winter he trades his climbing shoes for skis and spends early mornings writing avalanche forecasts.
