Adrian Ballinger Biography

Adrian Ballinger is a big mountain climber and skier, and a certified mountain guide. Ballinger is the founder of Alpenglow Expeditions, and has been professionally guiding groups on the world’s tallest mountains for 25 years. He has led over 150 international climbing expeditions on six continents, and made 17 successful summits of 8,000m peaks, including 8 summits of Mt. Everest. He is known for pioneering the use of pre-acclimatization for commercial expeditions, which cuts the amount of time typically spent on an expedition in half, while also leading the industry’s shift to ethical standards while guiding the world’s tallest mountains.

As an athlete, Ballinger is the only American to have made three successful ski descents of 8,000m peaks, including the first ski descent of Manaslu from its summit. He is also the fourth American to have summited both Mount Everest and K2 without the use of supplemental oxygen. Most recently, following a year of focused rock climbing amidst the Covid pandemic, Ballinger climbed his first 8a/5.13b, Fall of Man in the Virgin River Gorge. Ballinger aims to excel in all three of the traditional mountain guide disciplines - Mountaineering, Rock Climbing, and Skiing.
