Christopher Gibson, AMGA Certified Single Pitch Instructor – Owner  cgibson@friscowilderness.com

Chris has been an adventurer and dreamer since childhood, running through the woods and streams in his hometown of Maryland where those memories have forged a lifelong desire to bring those same experiences to the masses.

One of his famous quotes is “There is a fine line between fantasy and reality, and that is where I live.” Chris is a graduate of the University of Texas at El Paso where he earned his BS in Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics and went on to earn a Masters in Management from the University of Texas at Dallas, Chris is also a National Outdoor Leadership School graduate of the Wilderness First Responder Program and is currently an American Mountain Guide Association Certified Single Pitch Instructor and is working on the AMGA Certified Rock Instructor Certification in 2014.  When he is not out adventuring you can find him at the OPC introducing people to the sport of the outdoors, teaching belay classes, playing seventies rock music, and advocating stewardship for the wild places that we all love.
