This morning we would like to welcome back a couple of our talented IMCS Guides! Welcome back Max Lurie and Conrad Yager.

Max first got a taste of climbing as a teenager with Outward Bound in Vedauwoo, Wyoming. That was it! He was hooked. Max’s passion for ice, mixed and alpine climbing has taken him on expeditions to destinations like Alaska, Iceland and Peru!  He loves guiding in New England because of the wide variety of terrain and conditions. Max is one of IMCS’s strongest and most talented ice and mixed climbers!  You will have a blast climbing hard with this awesome guide!

Conrad is a true and humble New England hardman!  Conrad has such a chilled out demeanor, but don’t let him fool you! He gets after it when it is time to climb! He may look familiar to you because every-time you open up your guide book to North East ice climbing your looking at him on the front cover crankin up Frankenstein’s classic hard route Alucard. He started his climbing career in Marine Corp where he worked as a climbing instructor from 1988-1995. After his Marine service Conrad started  guiding in New England and has been teaching ice and rock climbing courses ever since! He is also an AMGA certified rock instructor.  Conrad has climbed in Nepal, Alaska (ham & eggs on the mooses tooth), Ecuador, Spain, Malta, Thailand, Canada, California, and Arizona. And oh yeah did we mention he has hit up almost all the the WI5 climbs in the North East!
