April 15th, Staff Training in the Gunks

Well as you can see I fell far behind on keeping my blog current. Getting married, going on a honeymoon, and buying a house will do that to you! The summer guiding season has finally kicked off but first a few pics from an excellent two-day staff training we had in the Gunks.

2nd Belay on High Exposure...

Keith is always in a good mood while climbing...

The classic High Exposure..

This get together had over 30 guides from all the satellite locations of the EMS Climbing School. As far as I know it was the first of its kind and I am really looking forward to it becoming an annual event.

About David Lottmann

David grew up skiing in the Whites and started climbing at a summer camp just north of Mt. Washington when he was 16. Those first couple of years solidified climbing as a lifetime passion. From 1996-2000 he served in the USMC, and spent the better part of those years traveling the globe (18 countries). After returning to civilian life he moved to North Conway to focus on climbing and was hired in 2004 as a Rock and Ice Instructor. Since then Dave has taken numerous AMGA courses, most recently attaining a Single Pitch Instructor. He has completed a Level 3 AIARE avalanche course, is a Level 2 Course Leader, holds a valid Wilderness First Responder and is a member of Mountain Rescue Service. When David isn't out guiding he enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, backcountry skiing, trying to cook something new once a week and sampling new micro-brews. He lives in Conway, NH with his wife Michelle, son Alex, and daughter Madalena.
