Amy Borch (she/her/they)

Amy is an artist and guide committed to mountain safety and facilitating collaborative spaces in what she calls "the outdoor studio". She adopts the mindset that curiosity within the technical and logistical structure of an outdoor experience can introduce  possibility. Amy believes that education provides a base camp for those who wish to explore the outdoors, with the idea that once folks can apply the skills needed to manage and mitigate risk, they get to invent where their experience might lead them and cocreate with the unknown.  


Whether Amy is teaching a women/non-binary focused trad climbing clinic in New England or an alpine backpacking seminar for veterans in the Sierra, she works to curate excellence in the performance and application of technical skills while simultaneously grounding educational progressions in awareness of the individual connection to self, community, and the diverse natural and social landscapes we access. 


Amy’s outdoor career began while working for the National Park Service as a steward of our public lands and then went on to explore conservation, outdoor education, and commercial guiding. Amy currently focuses on facilitating groups and individuals outside with specialized outcomes while also working as an artist to produce a body of work sourced from storytelling, natural motifs, and graphic representations of self-discovered symbology.

Bri will be helping with logisitics and any additional needs we might have in the field!
