Edwards Director, Mountain Experience
Edwards started his guiding career in the
1970s, and has since guided successful
ascents of many mountains around the world. Three of Jason's
Himalayan expeditions were on Everest (North
Col1994 (Deputy Leader) & 1991 (Guide); both
American Expeditions). In addition, Jason led the
successful 1997 Canadian Everest Expedition (via the S
Col) and placed both climbers on the summit of Everest
along with four of our Sherpa staff.
These peaks include an attempt on Shishapangma, Mt. McKinley (8 expeditions with Rainier
Mountaineering, Inc. since 1981), Mt. Rainier
(270+ ascents, for RMI). He has also guided
multiple expeditions to peaks in many other
countries, including the Mexican Volcanoes,
Bolivian peaks (several), Peru (including
Alpamayo, Huascaran, and several others),
Ecuador (many peaks), Argentina (Aconcagua),
Africa (Kilimanjaro), and climbed peaks and
walls in the United States, Canada and Nepal.
As a certified guide,
Jason likes to focus on participant enjoyment and
safety, which can be seen throughout the trips he
organizes and leads. Rock climbing, ice climbing,
hiking, skiing, and "working on the house"
with his wife Jodie, round out Jasons interest when
around home, and keep him busy when not guiding in the
mountains or planning future adventures. He also
spends a lot of time keeping in touch with past
participants from adventures hes taken with them
around the world.
Experience Everest Expedition will be a featured
expedition on EverestNews.com in Spring 2001.
