I have climbed with Scott on several occasions now. I was extremely confident in his knowledge and skills. He always communicated extremely well, was quick to answer any questions, and his advice for gear, training, and prep was always invaluable. His physical fitness was top condition. We were in a particular pickle on the top of a mountain on a recent trip, he kept the group organized and focused, and managed the situation in a professional and calm manner. There is no one i would …

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 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…
As a first time mountaineer, I couldn’t have asked for a better guide than Scott Perkins. His personal experience made me feel safe and educated every step of the way. He led by example throughout — on the mountain and in preparation. Knowing the training he engaged in to ensure he is always in the best physical fitness for the objective helped me greatly in planning my own training. By following his advice on training and gear selection, I was fit and comfortable throughout the journey.…
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.
“Whether its whiteout conditions in the Cascades, ice climbing melting waterfalls in the southeast, or long, scary routes anywhere in the world, Scott has lead me through the most challenging moments of my life…and I keep going back for more. I wouldn’t trust anyone else.”
I have climbed with Scott for 15 years and he is one of a select few of the many climbing partners I’ve had over the years that I consider a “go to” man. When I have a big and challenging climbing objective, I call Scott. I know he has what it takes to get a climbing project done safely and effectively. He is highly skilled in all forms of climbing: ice, rock, big wall, international mountaineering expeditions, and alpine and we have done all of the above. He has introduced me to…
“Scott was a total professional from beginning to end. It was necessary to correspond over email for the first few months and he was always quick to respond and seemingly happy to answer any of my questions regarding training, gear, etc. I felt very well taken care of from day one. From the very beginning of the climb, I had absolute trust in him and his guiding skills. He portrayed the calm assertiveness that comes from years of experience. He did an excellent job of explaining when …
I am a relative novice when it comes to climbing, but have had the good fortune of taking several classes and climbing trips with Scott. He has the ability to teach the complex and make it understandable and his commitment to safety is his utmost concern all the while making the demanding sport of climbing enjoyable. I for one am glad that I have the opportunity to learn the “ropes” from a climbing professional like Scott.
I have been climbing with Scott Perkins for nearly 13 years now; Scott has been my primary climbing teacher and mentor from the time I took up the sport. During the time we have been climbing partners, I have climbed numerous multi-day objectives in several mountain ranges with Scott, assisted him with guided expeditions, and observed him guiding and teaching beginners and novices alike, of all ages. Scott’s passion for climbing is exceeded only by his level of technical expertise — including…
