Take the LEAP

Hi, my name is Ryan Howes…

I believe that connecting with nature helps us to connect with ourselves. This profound yet simple idea that “we are nature” is evident when we stretch our limits in direct contact with wild places. You were made for this. So leave whatever ails you behind and climb with me to discover your personal flow state, a present moment heightened sense of awareness that will supercharge your ability to overcome life’s stressors. Just like nature, you are resilient, you are a high-performance machine that I will help you rediscover, because it was always there and you deserve to get it back. Climb with me for the most inspirational movement experience of your life. Growth and change are inevitable outcomes and what ailed you will no longer have power over you. You are powerful and ready for the challenge. So, Take the LEAP…

After climbing for 20 years and professional guiding for 12, I have learned that good health and happiness is key to human performance and loving life. Mindfulness practices, high-quality whole food, loving relationships and regular body maintenance are key elements that I share with my climbing and health clients.  Are you ready to bring more adventure and healthy living into your life? Email me below. But first, check out this video that won Maine Associated Press Video of 2018.

During the 2017/18 ice climbing season a unique weather event called the "BOMB CYCLONE" worked its way up the Atlantic Ocean and created a special new ice climb in Camden, Maine that I was fortunate to climb. The video "First Ascent-bomb Cyclone" shows both drone and up close footage of all the action. Thank you to Maine Today Media and Photojournalist Michael G. Seamans for the video!
