Clint Locks

Clint began climbing in 1997 and was immediately impassioned. “Climbing is much more than a sport to me,” he says. “It is a very deep and multi-layered experience that defines much of who I am. It is a physical, aesthetic, and emotional outlet, a social fulcrum, and at times even a meditation.”

Clint enjoys helping others experience the beauty of the mountains, and he believes the full climbing experience can only be achieved through a thoughtful balance of passion, adventure, calculation, and safety.

Aside from his work with CMS, Clint also teaches English at Pomona High School in Arvada, Colorado. “I believe I have the perfect life. Nothing could be better than being able to combine two of my passions in life: climbing and teaching.”

Clint has guided for the Colorado Mountain School since 2006. He is an AMGA certified Single Pitch Instructor, has successfully completed the AMGA Rock Guide Course, and is a certified Wilderness First Responder. When he’s not at work or hanging out with his wife and two children, Clint can often be found scampering around somewhere in his second home–Eldorado Canyon.
