Guiding since 2001
Much of Silas’ life – both personal and professional – is spent seeking out high and wild places. Silas guides climbing and skiing trips throughout North America and beyond. He is owner of Alpine Logic, LLC and teaches professional guide training courses for the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA).
While based in the Gunks of New York, Silas is an alpine climber at heart, and spends much of the year climbing and guiding in the greater mountain ranges around the country and abroad. His favorite destinations include the Italian Dolomites, the French Alps, Papua New Guinea, and Alaska, where he has put up significant first ascents.
While most of his time is spent climbing, skiing, Silas does manage to find time for a few miles on his motorcycle and to listen to each and every one of his rock star wife’s latest hits.
