About me

Laurie fell in love with hiking and skiing in the mountains as a kid but it wasn’t until she had sent her kids off to college that she was able to fully embrace mountain life.  While raising her family and cultivating a career in Physical Therapy, Laurie found time to trek and climb in Alaska, Switzerland, Africa and Patagonia.  Those trips stoked the fire for more time and experiences in the mountains.  She expanded her skill set to rock and ice climbing as a guest of Mooney Mountain Guides.  Once the kids were off, Laurie committed to the process of becoming a guide.  Through training, mentorship and many days out, she has developed her skills and become an AMGA Certified Single Pitch Instructor.

Laurie’s passion is to provide opportunities for beginner climbers, especially all women groups, to try climbing.  “I love watching women discover that they are much more capable and strong than they know through climbing”.  Laurie guides beginner rock and ice climbing as well as routes on the glaciers of Mt. Baker.

This was my first time outdoor rock climbing, I learned so much and felt safe the entire time. It was a very supportive and encouraging atmosphere and I’d recommend it to anyone looking to try something new!

Trip: Mt. Baker, 3 Day Ascent

Laurie Watt of Mooney Mountain Guides was a joy to spend time with. Her guidance, insight into our abilities, and innate ability to navigate among the complex network of crevasses made it all possible. The portion of the trip dedicated to glacier navigation and crevasse rescue was invaluable, primarily due to Laurie’s patience and adaptability to our prior experience.
