We are a small company run by IFMGA internationally certified mountain guide Dave Miller who, with his tight-knit team of mountain guides, run highly personalized climbs, treks and courses around the world. No “conveyor-belt” guiding here.

We represent the highest standards of mountain guiding in the United States and the world. CAG/IAG was founded by certified veteran mountain guides and California natives Dave Miller and Scott Brown. Dave and the rest of our team bring a high level of guiding experience and professionalism to CAG/IAG. Most are AMGA certified mountain guides and Dave is IFMGA internationally certified, the highest level of mountain guide certification in the world.

We strive to help you achieve your climbing, skiing and trekking goals through cutting-edge mountain climbing instruction and distinctive backcountry adventures not only in California, but around the world. Internationally we guide throughout Europe, Mexico and South America.
