434__200x240_about_photo_000rock guideBorn and raised in New Jersey, a land of endless suburbia, Ryan Stefiuk somehow developed a love of the outdoors at a very young age. He discovered climbing towards the end of high school and has been hopelessly addicted ever since. For nearly a decade, Ryan was semi-itinerant and climbed all over the country. A resident of Northampton, Massachusetts, he is now strategically located just a short drive away from some of the best climbing in New England and New York.

As a climber, Ryan has chosen to focus his energy on long rock and ice routes and hard mixed climbing in the Northeast. Ryan has climbed extensively throughout the United States and Canada and is responsible for much of the modern mixed route development currently taking place in the Catskill Mountain region.

 Ryan is an AMGA Certified Rock Guide, AMGA Single Pitch Instructor Course provider, Wilderness First Responder, NY State licensed Rock and Ice Guide, and has taken the AMGA Advanced Alpine Guides Course, AMGA Ice Instructor Course and AIARE Level I and II courses. Ryan also writes Bigfoot Mountain Guides, a blog about climbing and guiding in the Northeast.
