Built upon the belief that adventure can be transformational, let Girth Hitch Guiding take you on a life-affirming journey through the ancient mountains of the David Thompson Corridor. Based out of Red Deer, Alberta we thrive on introducing outdoor enthusiasts – from beginners to experts – to our beautiful mountains through Via Ferrata climbing and everything rock-related. Our approach to guiding is guest-centric and strives to bring the best out of everyone we work with. We believe that mountains are not something to be conquered but rather ancient friends to discover and experience. Our years exploring the mountains has taught us that being amidst the giants provides far more than mere fitness and adventure; we have discovered that our time in the mountains nurtures us holistically and spiritually and challenges us to be more than we thought we could be. As principal owner of Girth Hitch Guiding and a proud Métis man, Tim Taylor’s heritage is aligned with the stories and legends of the David Thompson Corridor and his passion for the mountains he calls home is rooted in his Cultural background. Join Tim and his team to find the sweet spot where challenge and growth come together to offer profound opportunities for personal development. We believe that transformational adventure focuses on creating a safety net in which real success and failure can occur. No guide can shelter you from those realities while exposing you to challenge. At Girth Hitch Guiding we embrace failure and success while fostering safe and meaningful experiences in the mountains.
