Mountain Madness is an internationally acclaimed mountain climbing, skiing, and trekking guide service, with a mountaineering school for all levels.
About thirty years ago, shortly after completing the coveted, yet harrowing second ascent of Kilimanjaro’s Breach Icicle, Mountain Madness founders, Scott Fischer and Wes Krause, took a break at the top. Relieved they survived the ascent of this vertical, detached pillar of ice, they also realized that they were hooked on adventure. Over the years they were chased by grizzly bears, walked among lions, rode avalanches, and made first ascents as they traveled across the globe. From this partnership, Mountain Madness emerged, a company with the philosophy of sharing the passion, challenges, beauty, and the joy of outdoor activities.
Since those wild and crazy days before the company was founded 25 years ago, Mountain Madness has achieved worldwide acclaim for excellence and continues to provide an extensive range of trips for different abilities. May it be a first-time trekker or those striving for an ascent of Mount Everest—there is always a new cutting edge adventure waiting!
