Craig is recognized as one of the finest mountain guides in the world. He has over 400 summits of Mount Rainier by 19 different routes. In 1989 he reached the summit of Kangchenjunga as part of the first American ascent. (At 8,568 meters, Kangchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world.) Craig has participated in three expeditions to Mount Everest; two via the Northridge and one from the South Col, which led to a successful summit in 2004. Craig has also summited the “Seven Summits.” As a year-round guide he leads our Northwest Climbs as well as expeditions to the Mexican Volcanoes.
