Pepper Dee, Mountain Guide, RMI Expeditions

Pepper first discovered his love for climbing and outdoor adventure at a young age, scrambling around the bluffs and creeks of his native Ozark hills in Missouri. Family trips out west introduced Pepper to the allure of the big mountains, and he finally discovered Mt. Rainier following his senior year of high school. Since then, Pepper has devoted himself to the disciplines of climbing and guiding, being fortunate enough to learn from some of the pursuit’s finest mentors in some of the country’s most majestic ranges. When not in the hills, Pepper enjoys playing music, reading, and making pesto.
