Is Alex the right guide for you? Alex spends equal amounts of time teaching and coaching as he does climbing larger objectives. "Every day is rewarding. From a family of total beginners all the way to a multi-day Alpine Climb. Guiding is what I do."
Alex believes that guiding is so much more than just putting the rope up. It is about creating an experience that not only adds to the quality of life of his guests, it also expands their relationship with the Earth and with themselves. “Creating experiences for growth is what I enjoy most about my work. The guests I climb with the most become my friends, and I get to watch them transform into climbers and planet activists.” As a father, business owner, teacher and experienced guide he has a keen sense of risk and how to manage it to create unforgettable experiences for his guests.
Alex grew up skiing and exploring the wild places of New England. These early explorations led Alex to rock climbing, mountaineering and backcountry skiing and from there into guiding. Alex began guiding professionally in 2007 in an effort to combine his passion for climbing and teaching. In 2014 Alex took over as owner of Mooney Mountain Guides from his mentor and friend Art Mooney, providing the opportunity for sharing his passion for the mountains into his life’s work.
