John McCune - Scarpa

John McCune


I am originally from Northern Ireland but I currently spend a lot of my time based in Chamonix in French Alps. I work throughout the year as an IFMGA mountain guide. I love climbing and skiing in the big mountains and I feel priviliged to be able to be in the mountains as a profession, sharing my knowledge and experience with others. I climb as much as I can and usually go on trips somewhere else in the world between the seasons.

I would love to go to Venezuela and climb a new big wall route on a Tepui. I have always marvelled at the landscape and the jungle is such a crazy contrast to the pointy mountains where I have spent a lot of my time.
