ACMG Rock Guide, Ski Guide, BSc
Jamie Selda began climbing in the U.S.’s northeast over twenty years ago and the sport has been a major part of his life ever since. He loves all kinds of climbing, but if he had to pick a favorite style it would be crack climbing. For this reason, Jamie has spent a lot of time traveling around the western USA in search of the ultimate crack.
Teaching in the outdoors is also a great passion of Jamie’s. He went to university to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Outdoor Education and, since then, has thoroughly enjoyed teaching people how to climb safely and appreciate our natural environment. This has been Jamie’s career for over twenty years now and he spends as many as 150 days a year working in the field.
Jamie lives and climbs year round in Squamish with his family, which consists of his wife Christine, children River, Jasper, two cats and two dogs – phew! He thinks Squamish is the best finger crack climbing in the universe.
