Hey what is Alpenglow?
Alpenglow is what happens to the mountains at sunset. As the sun falls behind the mountains a soft hue of reds, oranges, and even pinks and purples start to silhouette the mountains. Eventually the colors will start to look like a glowing off the mountain peaks.

Dan started climbing about 15 years ago when a college friend asked him to go to a local climbing gym in PA. His friend asked him if he had an ATC and Dan was like “what does Air Traffic Control have to do with climbing?” After spending 20 minutes in the gym’s parking lot Dan was ready to belay. After that first session Dan was hooked enough to get a membership and give some climbing outside a try.
Since that point Dan’s passion for the outdoors has blossomed. He can be found climbing any chance he gets. He spends most of his time climbing in the Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia climbing areas. Dan has climbed in the East Coast from Kentucky to Maine, and as far west as Washington state.
Dan is just as passionate about instruction as he is about the climbing itself. He wants to share the joys of rockcraft and help generate proficient and safety conscience climbers. His focus is on instructing climbers on any level and helping them reach their goals.
Whether this is your first time out climbing or your 20th Dan has tips and tricks to help improve efficiency and maximize your climbing time and ultimately your fun.
