Before Nikki McGee founded and became Executive Director of Elevated Mountain Guides, she faced many of the struggles that the participants we work with encounter on a daily basis. Coming from an underserved community with few resources and alternatives, Nikki found climbing and the outdoor community. Since discovering the tremendous benefits climbing has on physical and mental health, she has been dedicated to making the outdoors, and the tools it has to offer, accessible to all.
Since 2017 Project Climb has been creating opportunities for our local underserved communities to get outdoors by creating accessible outdoor education and supportive climbing programs. Our program's success directly connect with our 4 pillar mission: 1) Experiential Outdoor Education, 2) Environmental Stewardship, 3) Community Engagement & 4) Establishing Healthy Habits.
