Mike Elges discovered the world of climbing while studying Outdoor Recreation Leadership at Colorado Mountain College. Climbing quickly became an obsession for Mike, along with the pursuit of mountain craft as a career and way of life. The past eight years have taken him all over the world, including ice/rock climbing in the Northeast, big wall routes in Yosemite, ski descents in Colorado and Washington, climbs in Alaska, and international expeditions in Peru and Thailand.
