I took part in one of Scott’s climb safe clinics and learned a lot of new information. His examples of mishaps and the group’s discussion of how they could be avoided made for a sobering learning experience. I consider myself a knowledgeable and safe climber but I didn’t realize some of the minor details I was missing until Scott pointed them out. The group consisted of a wide variety of skill and experience levels and Scott was friendly and helpful in answering questions and working with …
“Scott has lead me in the mountain on several occasions. These trips were well planned, expertly guided and extremely safe. His pre-planning of our trip was evident in our successful ascent and more important our safe decent and return home. When I climb again, I will only reach out to Scott and his team of seasoned professionals and good friends.”

Scott led six novice climbers on Mexico’s Pico de Orizaba. Without his skills in guiding individuals in pursuit of lofty objectives, not one of us would have summated this mountain. In times of trouble- Scott handled, prodded and lead from the front. He transformed a novice group of individuals into a tightly bound team. He displayed not only great individual strength and stamina but the ability to take us out of our comfort zones and into the great sport of mountaineering.
I’ve had the opportunity to climb with and be guided by Scott a number of times over the past five years. I think I’ve learned something from him every time we’ve climbed together…and sometimes, a heck of a lot! While he is undoubtedly an incredibly accomplished and knowledgeable climber, even more impressive is his interaction with clients: super friendly, helpful, and looking out for everyone to safely accomplish the goal at hand. And when things don’t go as planned or the weather rol…
I’ve known Scott for over a decade. He has shared his love of climbing with our family and imparted more importantly the safety aspect of climbing. I hired him to take me and my 13 year old on her first Multi-pitch climb. We absolutely enjoyed ourselves. It was a very memorable occasion for us. We’ve taken several courses from him and I believe when my girls go on to climb on their own they will be strong and safe climbers, always remembering what Scott has taught them. We have valued his knowle…
Scott has guided myself and my family numerous times over the past decade and has always demonstrated care and concern for us as clients, deep technical climbing skill, and extensive preparation for each trip. I have already recommended Scott’s guided course on rock climbing anchors to several of my friends. His technical rock and mountain skills are only beaten by his concern for our safety and satisfaction with the experience. Overall a thorough, knowledgeable guide and a good guy.
In regards to Scott Perkins, a close friend and multi-talented individual. Scott has always proven himself the consummate professional, prepared not just for himself but anticipating the needs of others. My climbing and guiding experience has been spaced over 30+ years, I have come to recognize the qualities that define a good guide, Scott is exceptional. Scott’s climbing resume is quite distinct and varied, his success rate and safety record unblemished from Alaska to Argentina. Scott’s fitness…

Letter of Rec for Mr.Scott PerkinsLieutenant General, USAF, retiredUSAF
Scott is an outstanding climber and climbing instructor. He has the patience to teach a 9 year old and the skill to impart knowledge to climbers that are already very experienced. His judgment is beyond reproach. I have observed him perform flawlessly under stress. Scott is an accomplished alpinist and easily the most physically fit person I know. I cannot think of another person I would rather have by my side in a dangerous situation. I would and have trusted Scott with my daughter…
“…I am looking forward to learning more about the sport of mountaineering and cannot imagine being able to find someone else more capable and knowledgeable than Scott and certainly not anyone that I trust more in the unpredictable conditions that can sometimes arise in the mountains. Knowing Scott the way I do and knowing his concerns for safety I felt completely at ease entrusting my family and friend’s safety with Scott.”
