AMGA Certified Single Pitch Instructor
Antim graduated from the University of Connecticut with a degree in Accounting. During his time at university he would visit his closest friends in the Burlington area who were attending UVM, and during each visit they would do some climbing around Northern Vermont. He grew to love the area and its abundance of natural beauty and opportunities for adventure. He brought his interest for rock climbing back to Connecticut with him where he sharpened his skills climbing on local “Traprock” boulders, and cliffs. Eventually Antim found his way to living in Northern Vermont, where he fell in love with the sport.
Antim has climbed around the country in places like the North Cascades, as well as the dry deserts of Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. Throughout his climbing career he has always wanted to share his knowledge and experience to help others learn and unlock this truly amazing way to appreciate and move throughout nature. It was through mentorship, deliberate research and practice that Antim became a Single Pitch Instructor through the American Mountain Guides Association. He works as a Petra climbing instructor for both rock and ice venues. You might also run into Antim on the ski slopes, or out mountain biking.
Winter 2022 was Antim’s first season with Petra Cliffs!
