Cindy is a Wilderness First Responder and runs the show around here. Cindy moved to southern Utah from Houston in 2017 and fell in love with the area. After Cindy moved, she began doing a bunch of technical canyons and couldn't get enough of it! Cindy immediately knew she wanted to be involved in the industry and wanted to help diversify the Southern Utah outdoor industry. When Cindy isn't working, you can find her canyoneering, on a backpacking trip, or getting some Mother-Son bonding time with Solstice.

Solstice "Sol" is a Utah native and avid climber of anything he can get his paws on. When he is not running around the shop, you can find him napping or trying to eat your human food. Sol keeps all our guides in check and I am sure is on his way to becoming the first-ever AMGA Single Pitch Instructor for the kitty climbing community!

Audrey Abbott

Lead Guide


Audrey earned her Bachelor of Arts from the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. The summer after graduation, she began to lead biking and hiking trips with an active travel company, and what started out as “one last hurrah” before settling into “the real world” turned into a lifelong passion and career. Audrey developed a deep regard for adventure travel, as well as the wilderness experience, and she believes strongly in the innate connection between outdoor exploration and self-empowerment and growth. Before moving to Utah in 2018, Audrey lived and worked all over the world. She spent significant time in Catalonia, Spain, Zambia and Zimbabwe, Patagonia, and Southeast Asia. 


When she is not guiding, Audrey spends her free time exploring Southern Utah, where she enjoys a multitude of outdoor activities, primarily climbing and biking. In between adventures, Audrey can be found relaxing with a cup of coffee and a stack of books on the porch of her home outside Zion National Park. Audrey is an AMGA Single Pitch Instructor and Wilderness First Responder.
