Mountaineer for polar or glacier work

Ted Scambos
Hello all -
I worked with a mountaineer last year at BAS's Rothera Station in the
Antarctic Peninsula. Ben Tibbetts was a survival/mountaineering
instructor and general assistant at Rothera most of last season, and has
extensive experience in mountaineering and polar work.   He's interested
in more.

He's got that sort of lanky devil-may-care cheerful attitude that lets
you know you can trust your life to him without him making a big deal
about it afterward.

More seriously, I would strongly recommend him as a field assistant on a
research expedition in any icy region. He is a good photographer, values
data collection, is intelligent, and eager.
