About Nik Mirhashemi
Nik grew up in southwest Colorado sandwiched between the rugged San Juan Mountains and the vast canyon country of the Colorado Plateau. While going to school in Boulder, CO he picked up rock and ice climbing and started leading university trips into the mountains. Nik has climbed, skied and guided extensively throughout the western US as well as Alaska and many places abroad. He loves sharing his passion for the mountains and desert with others and teaching them the skills to be safe and successful in the wilderness. He now splits his time between summers guiding in Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and Jackson Hole, fall and spring in the Utah desert and winters in the Wasatch. When not guiding, Nik enjoys combing the desert for unclimbed cracks, visiting the great ranges of the world and spending time with all the interesting characters he has met along the way.
