Welcome to Finding North!

Hi! I’m Chelsey!

I'm a proud Milwaukeean who's been lost (or found) climbing mountains in Chile for the last 5 years. I was born with a slight fear of the routine, I'm happiest outside and I feel the most peace when I'm stretching my comfort zone. Here, I'll do what I can to bring Mother Nature closer to our lives. I'm currently training for Aconcagua, my first of the 7 summits! So, welcome to my mountain journey.

Want to know more?

Climb Aconcagua with me!

What’s Aconcagua you ask? 

At 6,962 meters / 22,837 feet, Aconcagua is the highest mountain outside of Asia, the tallest mountain in this hemisphere. It is one of the mountains in the “7 summit” circuit – a mountaineer’s dream of the tallest mountains on each continent.

I leave January 12… join me!
