Guide Melissa Arnot Reid.


Melissa has made her life about exploring the beautiful mountains of the world. She is passionate about climbing and pushing her own limits, but her ultimate joy comes from sharing that journey with others, both while helping them push their limits and get to their own summit and while sharing the stories from some of the beautiful places in the world.

A professional mountain guide, working internationally since 2004, Melissa has stood on the top of many of the worlds most stunning peaks while assisting clients and pushing her own goals. She has stood atop the summit of Mount Everest 6 times. She is the first American woman to successfully summit Everest without supplemental oxygen. Learn more at
