REST IN PEACE our friend!!
Tyler Anderson attained almost legendary status in the climbing community of Huaraz, only part of which can be attributed to his mountain achievements (which are many) leaving the rest to the very unique and loveable nature of his being. Tyler climbed mountains and alpine rock for over 15 years before an accident in the Cordillera Blanca took his life in July of 2010. Tyler will be remembered always for his outstandingly fun, thoughtful, and inspiring style of life. We were blessed to have Tyler as a friend and part of our guiding team and wish him spectacular adventures on the 'other side'. A foundation in Tyler's name has been set up to help train local guides in the Huaraz area, improve operational safety standards, and augment emergency resources as a step towards making the Cordillera Blanca a safer climbing mecca for all.
