Madison Mountaineering is a boutique mountain guide service based in Seattle, Washington. We specialize in mountaineering expeditions to the “7 Summits” and other renowned international and domestic peaks, as well as unclimbed peaks in extremely remote regions. In 2015, we led expediitons on all 7 continents including 3 out the 4 highest peaks in the world! To see what climbs are happening now please visit our Dispatches page.

We provide education and training for climbers who aspire to become self-sufficient, aware and respectful of the local culture, stewards of the environment, and for whom safety is the number one priority in all climbing endeavors.

In addition to guiding climbers on expeditions Madison Mountaineering provides consultations and ‘full service’ logistics / support for production companies seeking to operate in harsh mountain terrain in areas such as Pakistan, Nepal, Alaska, Antarctica, Greenland, Ecuador, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Washington State, and many other spectacular locations around the globe.

Testimonials

We had a great trip. Arrangements were great, we loved the safari, and the climb was amazing – I’ll happily recommend Madison Mountaineering to anyone who wants to climb Kilimanjaro.

David Thompson

On July 27, 2014, my birthday, I became the oldest American to summit K2. The professionalism and skill of Garrett Madison was key in this achievement. His attention to detail, plus leveraging his extensive Everest experience gave our team the best chance to summit and descend safely and quickly on arguably the world’s toughest mountain.

Alan Arnette, Fort Collins, CO

I had a magnificent time in Africa with Garrett Madison. Everything was first class. Garrett puts his climbers, at all times, first. Garrett always made sure I was taken care of. It was a fantastic experience.

Judge Mike Heavey (Ret.), Seattle, WA

Garrett / Madison Mountaineering is the most professional, organized, flexible and creative guide services I have used.  The preparation and dissemination of detail prior to climbs is exemplary, knowledge imparted while in the mountains superb, and memories created from these trips irreplaceable.

Scott Thomas, Seattle, WA

I’ve had the great fortune of climbing with Garrett on several expeditions. He is, quite frankly, the ultimate guide. His knowledge, skill set, temperament, and judgement are unparalleled.  Safety is key. After all, climbs only count if they are round trip.  And he makes it fun! I can’t imagine climbing without him.

Robin C. Houck, Bainbridge Island, WA

I’ve been very fortunate to have Garrett Madison as my guide on five high altitude climbs. As one of the top mountain guides in the world, Garrett possesses extraordinary expertise, athleticism, and passion for climbing. He not only keeps his clients safe, he ensures that they have a truly unforgettable and fun experience.

Jim C., Seattle, WA

Climbing Kilimanjaro was my first big mountain adventure. I had no idea how much fun and how rewarding it would be. All of the logistical details were handled by Garrett Madison and the program seemed very streamlined and well thought out. For climbers wanting a great program on Kilimanjaro I strongly recommend going with Garrett.

Gage Peterson, Seattle, WA

Thank you Garrett Madison for taking my family and I on an unforgettable adventure to Africa!  We wanted to climb Kilimanjaro and do a safari, but most of us had little or no hiking experience, nor had we traveled much outside of the US.  The experience greatly exceeded our expectations, and changed our lives forever.

John Rudolf, Bellevue, WA
