Graham Zimmerman



Graham is an alpinist focused on climbing big hard routes in the great ranges and crags of the world. He has run over 30 expeditions and assignments to areas including Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Alaska, and Argentina. For his climbing exploits, Graham won the 2010 New Zealand Alpinist of the Year and was a finalist for the 2014 Piolet d’Or (alpine climbing’s equivalent to an Olympic gold medal) and won the 2017 Cutting Edge Award from the American Alpine Club.

Ice climbing is a core component of these pursuits and one of Graham’s favorite types of climbing. He has never been to Michigan and is terribly excited to attend the Michigan Ice Fest!
