It’s a safe gamble that the word “pioneer” will find its way into any description of Aaron Mulkey. Whether he’s in his backyard in the Wyoming/Montana region he calls home (he’s established nearly 300 first ascents in the area alone) or in some isolated backcountry around the globe, big mileage hikes and multi-day scouting missions to find unclimbed routes keep him up at night and get him going in the morning. The less that’s known about what he’s set out to scale, the more he can approach the route with an uncluttered, unbiased mind and make the endeavor his own.
Aaron is no stranger to Ice Fests, he has traveled to Michigan for years now as is also a regular at the other amazing festivals across the country. In addition to lending his talents to others, he exposes the goods of Northwestern Wyoming from Pilot Creek to the infamous South Fork Valley during his own festival, The Wyoming Ice Festival!
