About Gary Newmeyer
Gary started climbing in 2010 when he lived in Anacortes, WA while stationed there in the Navy. After his enlistment in the Navy, Gary moved to Durango, CO for sunny weather and to pursue his new found love for rock climbing. This is also where he met another JHMG guide Nik Mirhashemi. Nik and Gary started climbing together exclusively. Gary became interested in guiding and became an AMGA Certified Single Pitch Instructor in 2013 and thus kicked off his guiding career.
Gary started guiding in Durango, and continued to progress as a mountain guide with training thru the AMGA. He is now an AMGA certified Rock Guide with years of experience in Red Rock. He has traveled all around the west, and is in love with the sandstone climbing in Red Rock. He has onsighted 5.12, established new routes, and shared his knowledge of climbing and the area for the last 3 years. Gary enjoys teaching all types of classes and guided objectives. He will be teaching an Intro to Outdoor course on October 23rd and 24th. He enjoys group trips for the wide range of personalities, camaraderie, and an opportunity to pass on his deep knowledge of Red Rock Canyon.
