Courtney Kirk – Guide

Meet Adventure Climbing Guide, Courtney Kirk. Courtney is an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor from Little Rock, Arkansas. She has been active in the outdoors since the day she was born, road tripping all over the United States. About six years ago she started sport climbing and hasn’t looked back since. Everything about it makes her crave it more. In the past year she has started traditional climbing and believes that it is just as good or even better than sport climbing. The thrill of being able to place her own gear is what makes it so exciting. Courtney is currently studying biology at Lyon College in Batesville, Arkansas and plans to go to graduate school for outdoor education. She has a strong mountain sense and understands a lot of the biology of the outdoors. She is currently single pitch climbing but hopes to quickly learn how to big wall climb. As an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor, Courtney hopes to become a Rock Guide and eventually a fully-certified IFMGA Mountain Guide. She also holds a Wilderness First Responder certification.
