About Jess Worley

Jess grew up playing in the heart of the Elk Mountains in Carbondale,

Colorado. She now calls Boulder her home. Jess’s background is in outdoor

education at Colorado Outward Bound School, leading rock climbing trips

and coaching the climbing team at Colorado Rocky Mountain School, as well

as teaching adaptive skiing for Challenge Aspen. Now, Jess splits her time

between sharing her love of the mountains with others through guiding, and

working as a social worker at the local community health clinic. She plans to

meld her passions for rock climbing, social justice and mental health. Jess is

excited to be a part of The Mountain Guides and share her love for all things

rock climbing, from helping new climbers to feel comfortable on the rock, to

working with more experienced climbers to expand their skill sets and tackle

more challenging objectives. Jess’s favorite local climbing area is Eldorado

Canyon, but there is nothing she loves quite as much as the splitter cracks in

Bear Ears National Monument.

  • Jess guided me and my friend through our first multi pitch climb up the Third Flatiron in Boulder, CO. From the moment we met her, we could tell that she loved rock climbing and was eager to show us how to tackle a new route. With her enthusiasm towards rock climbing, along with her kindness and warmth, Jess was the perfect person to explore the outdoors with. I look forward to climbing with her again in the future.

  • We were so grateful for Jess and we thoroughly enjoyed my daughter’s maiden voyage on her first multi-pitch climb. She did amazing and Jess was the perfect guide. She connected with my daughter & I instantly & was efficient in placing gear & moving us through the pitches at a good pace. We will cherish the memories! Thank you Jess!!!

  • Jess is the best! She was super knowledgeable, a great teacher, able to tailor the day to ensure that I got the most out of it, and generally an awesome human to hang out with all day :) I came out of the day having learned a ton and feeling inspired to keep progressing as a climber. Couldn't have imagined a better day.

  • Jess and Nate both did a great job in listening to what I was after and tailored two fun days that met my expectations. They are both great guides and great people. Thanks for two memorable days.
