Black Diamond supports the AMGA rock guide exam with a grant and each year we are excited to see new guides pass their exams and become certified AMGA rock guides. Such is the recent case with Mark Allen (also an AMGA-certified ski guide), who passed his exams before setting off on a wild first ascent adventure with Graham Zimmerman to Mount Bradley on Alaska's Ruth Glacier. To read Mark's report with impressive photos from the ascent, go to: blackdiamondequipment.com/en-us/journal/climb/athletes/mark-allen-and-graham-zimmerman-make-first-ascent-of-4600foot-alpine-big-wall-in-alaska
