Brooks School Ice Climbing 1/13/14

Yesterday with 3 other EMS guides I got to take out the always motivated Brooks School outing club. This is the 3rd year in a row I’ve gotten to work with a new group of kids from this school and it’s always a blast watching them throw themselves at any challenge with encouragement and support from each other. North End of Cathedral was huge & plastic and despite a surprise 180 on the icy drive out the day went as expected, awesome!

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.
