Kinley Aitken

Growing up on Vancouver’s North Shore, Kinley Aitken has been working in the mountains for 13 years. Although her climbing adventures have included the west coast to the deep south of North America, France, Italy, Greece, Spain and  Australia, Kinley can’t think of a better way to spend a summers day than cruising up clean splitter cracks above the ocean in Squamish or among massive granite towers in the Bugaboos. Having worked as a massage therapist, professional rigger, stunt woman, rope access technician, raft guide and outdoor educator (phew),  Kinley’s breadth of experience translates into a very memorable day out. Whether it is teaching movement skills amongst the famous Grand Wall boulders or guiding 15 pitch routes up the Chief Kinley loves spending time on the rock and sharing that experience with her guests. During the winter Kinley can be found creating culinary delights with her Backcountry Catering business and skiing deep powder in the Coast Range of B.C.
