Guide Spotlight – Kelly Glascott

alaska mountain guide

If you’re out on a Alaska backpacking trip with us, and find an unreasonable amount of ketchup in your bear canister, then Kelly Glascott is probably your guide. In addition to his insatiable desire for ketchup (catsup?), he has an unmatched enthusiasm for the outdoors, and loves sharing it with others. Kelly currently holds the SEAG speed-record for eating breakfast burritos, and is ahead by a large margin. Hailing from upstate New York, Kelly grew up playing in the Adirondack Mountains, and was quickly drawn up to the mountains of Alaska after college.

In the outdoors, Kelly will join you for almost any adventure, and spends his days off exploring the Wrangell Mountains by hiking, climbing, running, and packrafting the backcountry. An accomplished ice climber, Kelly leads a mean Ice Climbing trip for SEAG, and is always happy to share his “tips and tricks” of the sport. Whatever you do with Kelly, you’ll be sure to have a great time! (Just make sure you pack plenty of ketchup).
