Elements Guiding…

Lorne Foisy has been climbing both rock and ice for 20 years now.  During this time, he has climbed everything from the beautiful alpine granite of the Bugaboos in British Columbia to the towering cliffs of Yosemite Valley.  Relocating from the Canadian Rockies back to the Haliburton Highlands in 2015, his desire to continue climbing and teaching others still lingered with memories fueled by the mountains.  The potential of the Highlands inspired Lorne to start his guiding, enabling others to share in the same experiences that rooted him in the beginning.

Lorne started his guiding career with the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides in the Canadian Rockies. As a certified Top Rope Climbing Instructor, he guided for the Tim Horton Children’s Ranch in Kananaskis Alberta. Continuing his education in Ontario, he has most recently acquired his certification as a Single Pitch Climbing Guide with the US based Professional Climbing Guides Institute. His technical knowledge and skill paired with a focus on safety makes climbing with Lorne an exceptional experience!
