MARK HOUSTON has been guiding and instructing others in climbing technique for other 20 years; he and Kathy started their climbing careers 26 years ago in the PNW and they got their start guiding with the American Alpine Institute (AAI) in Bellingham. Like Kathy, Mark is certified by the AMGA and IFMGA (American Mountain Guide Association and International Federation of Mountain Guides Assn. respectively); Mark was among the first to gain IFMGA status (in 1997). Mark and Kathy made a very lightweight and fast ascent of the South Face of Aconcagua (43 hours). Mark and Kathy run their own small guiding company and lead trips all over the world, throughout the year.
