Welcome to the Next Summit!
My name is Alex Derr.

I started this blog to help people stay safe in the mountains while advocating and educating to preserve the peaks for the future. Explore my route guides, read a blog, or download a free resource for your next mountain adventure.  This site is 100% supported by its readers – if you appreciate my work, consider becoming a patron below. Thank you!

I want to help other explore the mountains safely & responsibly.

When I started hiking and climbing the mountains of Colorado, I noticed how many people were completely unprepared for the peaks. I started my blog to provide resources and information for those new to the mountains. If you have an idea or request for a new resource or article, or if you’d like to collaborate, get in touch with the link to the right. I look forward to connecting!
