blessed with a father who shared with him, his passion for climbing. By age 7
Robert had reached the summit of Mt. Adams. Therefore, it is no surprise that
in 1990 Robert joined forces with climbers from China and Russia as part of an
International Peace Climb. The climb was one of Roberts many success stories
which have taken him to the top of the World’s highest and most challenging
has a unique ability to stay calm under pressure, this
coupled with his love of cultural history, and a genuine
enthusiasm to help see clients realize their goals make
him a successful guide. An example of his dedication to
his clients was shown while leading an expedition to
Bolivia’s Huayna Potosi. Somehow on the way to base camp
the group’s food had been lost. In order for the climb
to continue on to the summit the group would have to go
a week without food, unlikely odds for success. Robert
was not willing to let this summit dream die for his
clients. Within two hours he had managed to put his
fishing skills to use, (with the help of a two year old
powerbar and some dental floss) he pulled a 27 pound
Bolivian Fleece Trout out of a nearby stream. The team
made it to the 19,975’ summit.
Just to list a few of
Roberts’ accomplishments would include, 275 summits of Mt. Rainer, 16
expeditions on Mount McKinley, 4 Everest expeditions, summits of Dhaulagiri,
and Cho Oyo. He also made a first assent with Ed Viesturs up the west face of
Jahntugan in Russia.
