MIKE STARON, LEAD CLIMBING GUIDE

MIKE STARON, LEAD CLIMBING GUIDE

Mike has many passions and they all involve being outdoors, whether mountain biking, backcountry skiing, climbing, fly fishing, or hunting down interesting rocks he does not spend much time indoors. Mike's background in geology and his Wilderness First Responder and Avalanche 1 training makes him a great person to have around while in the wilderness. This is Mike's third season with the Mount St. Helens Institute, spending his off season traveling in Patagonia and backcountry skiing every day with his dog in the Tetons of Wyoming and Idaho.
