Little bit about Seb: After finishing a college
degree in Social
Science and building his climbing skills,
Sebastian spent several years travelling and
climbing in Europe, South America and across
Canada. In one memorable trip he spent 13 months
in the Andes, climbing at will from Ecuador to
Argentina. Eventually he needed more than small
jobs to maintain this lifestyle, and he went on to
a seamanship school completing a Navigation Degree
at Institut maritime du Québec. He then worked as
a navigation officer on merchant ships, and for
the last 12 years worked for the Canadian Coast
Guard. In 2014 Sebastian came to the Rockies for a
month of ice climbing and the following year moved
to Canmore altogether. In 2016 Sebastian entered
the Guiding career. He became certified Apprentice
Alpine Guide in 2018. His most memorable climbs
are La Pomme d’Or and Le Mulot, Quebec, South Face
of Mercedario, Argentina, Torre de Paron and
Alpamayo, Peru and Slipstream, Canada.
