Steve House literally wrote the book on training for alpine climbing. (You can check it out here.) He’s worked as a professional mountain guide since 1992, and has helped pioneer the growth of “alpine style” climbing — think lightweight, self sufficient, fast.
He’s been a GU athlete since the early days of the company. In 2000, fueled by GU Energy Gels, he and a partner set the record up Denali’s Slovak Direct route and notched a time that was 70% faster than the previous record! (17 years later, the record still stands.)
