Nathan Kilroy

Guiding Since 2020

Nathan found a passion for the outdoors at a young age. He would often travel to New Hampshire to explore its notches and climb its peaks. Nathan found climbing during middle school and would spend most of his free time at the climbing gym. In 2014 he started going to a climbing summer camp provided by Acadia Mountain Guides. There he was introduced to the many wonders of climbing and developed a deep love for the sport. This camp taught him most of the skills he knows today and he’s never stopped learning.


Nathan did a short stint studying Adventure Education at Plymouth State University, where he would often find himself climbing at Rumney, skiing in the White Mountains, and learning about the natural world during class.


In Fall 2019, Nathan did a semester-long course through the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). There he was challenged physically and mentally, hiked many miles, learned about wilderness medicine, climbed tall cliffs, walked through vast canyons, and skied endless powder. Since NOLS, Nathan has continued to find himself doing the things he loves such as rock climbing, ice climbing, skiing, and backpacking.


Some of Nathan’s favorite climbing areas are Rumney, the Gunks, Red Rock, the White Mountains, and of course Acadia National Park. Nathan dreams about climbing big walls in Wyoming, Yosemite, and Colorado.
