Sonnie Trotter

“Climbing is freedom” says Sonnie Trotter (30) of Squamish, BC. “I love the freedom of movement without coaches or rules, freedom to travel, freedom to explore and the whole time living it all under open skies.”

Sonnie Trotter is one of if the most accomplished free climbers in the world. He has been grappling rocks and setting standards since he was 16 years old – has over 14 years of experience under his belt. When not climbing the worlds hardest routes, Sonnie can be found at home in Squamish BC, looking for possible first ascents and rock guiding on the Stawamus Chief. Sonnie is a certified assistant rock guide through the ACMG. He is also an accomplished writer, photographer and product developer – basically, anything that has to do with climbing and mountain life. After spending nearly two years in Canmore, Sonnie moved back to the coast for the world class granite, but says he will always be drawn to the majestic rocky mountains.

“Climbing and it’s community have given me so much and allowed me to live such a rich existence, that I feel honored to be able to share my passion and my experience with others. I hope my guiding can have a positive impact.
