About Randy Hohf
Randy has been climbing recreationally for over 40 years, beginning in the late 1970s when he first moved to the state of Washington and fell in love with mountains! After taking multiple rock and alpine courses through Skagit Valley Community College in Mt. Vernon, WA, he moved to Missoula to get an undergrad degree in Wildlife Biology, where he also continued his love for climbing on rock, snow and ice. For 25 years, Randy directed a family wilderness camp one week each summer in Alberta, daily a climbing/rappelling wall and taking groups ranging from age seven to senior adults out onto the real rocks for single-pitch rock climbing. Recreationally, Randy has led two successful summit climbs of Mt. Rainier and has completed many multi-pitch rock climbs throughout western Montana, North Idaho, Wyoming, New Mexico and the Bugaboos in British Columbia. Randy has summited over 100 peaks in Glacier National Park, including the technical ascents of Mt. Saint Nicholas, Wilbur, B7 Pillar, Pumpelly Pillar and others.Since moving to the Flathead Valley in 2009, Randy has spent countless days sport climbing at Kila, Point of Rocks, Stillwater Canyon, and Stone Hill, so is intimately acquainted with all the local crags on The Mountain Guides (Whitefish) itinerary. Along with his love for climbing, Randy has a great passion for introducing others to the mountains and local crags of Northwest Montana. In addition to his climbing experience, Randy has also worked as a summer Interpretative Ranger in Glacier National Park and is currently an Earth Science Teacher at Whitefish High School, adding to his understanding of the local natural history and geology.
