Eric Coulthard is a computer scientist. He is the founder and developer of summitsearch.org, a mountain community site with an encyclopedia, trip reports, a forum and over 15,000 mountain photos. When it comes to mountain trips, Eric loves exploring. Many of his top treks are exploratory jaunts with little or no beta. The ability to draw routes and use the photos on summitsearch.org helps immensely in planning his explorations. One of Eric's goals is to get a photo of every named peak in the Canadian Rockies on summitsearch.org. He also hopes to visit every icefield in the Rockies. Outside of work and mountains, Eric is a devoted husband and father. He lives in Edmonton, Alberta.
