Ian Welsted

Ian is best known in climbing circles as one of only two Canadians to be awarded the Piolets D'or, for his first ascent of K6 West (7000m) in Pakistan. Born and raised in the flatlands of Manitoba, Ian moved to Chamonix France at the age of 17. After studying economics and philosophy at Ottawa University and McGill University, where he carefully avoided receiving a degree, he moved to western Canada and lived in Nelson and Canmore before settling in Golden, B.C.
