Chase Nelson, Mountain Guide, RMI Expeditions

Chase began a life in the outdoors at a very early age, spending time backpacking, hunting and fly fishing with his family in Washington. His love of the mountains brought him into climbing, which has since become a driving force in his life. Chase graduated with a degree in Biology from the University of Idaho, but took any chance he had to escape to the mountains. He enjoys all disciplines of climbing and has a passion for teaching others, which has led him to guiding for RMI.
