Always professional, always personable, always safe, always considerate. They take the time to develop a plan with the client that creates a fun and challenging experience; also, they provide valuable teaching moments along the way. I look forward to using their services again.

Climbing The Grand with JHMG was one of the most incredible experiences in my already rich life. I came into the trip a bit apprehensive about the climbing and exposure, but the training and guides not only made me feel safe and confident, they also taught me skills to improve future climbing experiences. I expected crazy beautiful views and fun times and you guys delivered both along with an unexpected level of service, coaching, and camaraderie. Keep up the great work and we’ll see you on future climbing and mountaineering trips.

Excellent climb with top-notch guides. Safety was the number one consideration. Our group of four all summitted, two had no climbing experience. Highly recommend!
From the start, the guides have your safety at the forefront. Additionally, they are reading you, paying attention to you, the weather, other factors and doing their best to get you safely to the top. They went as far as to tell us where to place every step, to help us with efficiency as we moved up and down the mountain. Top notch guiding all the way.
