Walter Feuz

(1894-1985) Walter was one of the youngest of the five Oberland guides who took up residence in Golden in 1912. He never had an official guideā€™s license as he was not old enough to qualify when he left Switzerland. He was trained by his older brothers, Edward Feuz jr. and Ernest Feuz and had a successful guiding career. He climbed extensively with Katie Gardiner in the southern Rockies.
