Gaby Pilson

AKA "Sergeant Pepper Spray"


Seasons with Exit Glacier Guides: 2


Role: Lead Climbing Guide, Lead Hiking Guide, Lead Heli Guide

 A Lake Placid, New York transplant, Gaby fell in love with climbing when she moved up to New York’s Adirondacks for high school. Now, she studies Philosophy at Hamilton College, where she spends most of her time getting people excited to play outside by leading climbing and hiking trips for her school’s Outdoor Leadership Center. 

When she’s not in class, Gaby can be found skiing powder, climbing hard, digging snow shelters, or napping in a hammock.  Gaby loves a strong cup of coffee, reading Nietzsche, wearing multiple puffy jackets, and searching for the next great adventure.
