Hello there,

My name is Hayden Carpenter and I'm a freelance writer and photographer based out of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Previously, I was the online editor for Rock and Ice magazine. Along with Rock and Ice, my work has appeared in Outside and Rock & Snow (Japan).

I cover all things climbing—from bouldering to the alpine—as well as training, adventure, gear and the general outdoors. I am currently open to assignments. Contact me here.

When I'm not writing, you can find me out climbing—or eagerly searching for elusive Southwestern ice. Follow me on Instagram @rockymtngringo and Twitter @rockymtngringo.

If you have any questions or would like to talk further about possible article assignments, please reach out!

Thanks for stopping by,
