About Keith Sidle

Keith developed his affinity for climbing while in high school on the trap rock cliffs of Connecticut. His passion for climbing brought him further north to the ‘Granite State’ of New Hampshire where he spent his college years plugging gear at Cathedral Ledge, clipping bolts at Rumney and swinging ice tools at Lake Willoughby. Besides guiding the summer season in the Tetons, he returns to New Hampshire to guide ice climbing for the winter season in North Conway. A glutton for the cold, Keith heads further north to guide on Denali during the spring. His favorite route in the Tetons is the Black Ice Couloir.and is an AMGA Assistant Rock Guide, has completed the Ice Instructor Course and an AIARE Level 2 avalanche course.

  • Keith was an amazing guide that went way beyond where any normal guide would have turned around. It's great to know that JHMG recruits and works with such amazing individuals. My greatest compliments to Keith and JHMG.

  • Keith, Steve, and Aimee were three incredible guides. They were all patient and inspiring the entire trip. Although we didn’t get to summit the Grand, it was still one of the best experiences of my life.

    — Josh Stephens
  • Matt and Keith were outstanding.  I really appreciate their expertise and capabilities.  It is obvious that they know what they are doing in the wilderness.

  • If you want to climb safely with confidence and learn about WHAT you are actually doing and climbing…Pick JHMG.  Hands down the best guys for the job!  YEARS of experience and professionalism are very obvious from the moment you step inside the shop.  Nice guys, well trained and fun to climb with!

    — Darren Davis
  • I just wanted to thank you for setting us up with such unbelievable guides.  They were absolutely solid, professional and fun to be around.  We couldn’t have had better, nor better results.  That climb of the Grand is something I’ll never forget.  I will be back to climb Mt. Moran next.
