  • Nate combined safety and teaching into an awesome adventure.  His explanation of the equipment and how it is used, made the climb more interesting and his encouragement made the experience lots of fun.  My son and I had a truly great day!

  • I had a really great trip on the Grand with Nate Opp, who was able to make the climb feel challenging, yet obtainable, the entire time.  The entire experience, from the trip up, to the stay at Corbett High Camp, to the climb itself, was first rate.  I can’t wait to come back and climb in the Tetons with JHMG again!

  • I just climbed the Grand Teton with three amazing guides from JHMG. Nate, Paul and Jacob have years of experience mountaineering, and their professionalism and ability is second to none. I would climb with any of them again, without hesitation.

  • I thought all three of our guides, Nate, Paul and Jacob were extremely professional, very patient and took the time to get to know us.  They were informative on the actual climb and expectations.  I enjoyed the experience and would feel comfortable recommending and choosing JHMG again.  I also wanted to give a shout-out to Mark and Patrick in the office who helped to coordinate everything on the front-end for me.  They did an awesome job!!

  • My two sons had an awesome experience learning more about climbing, the associated terms and interacting with their guide Nate.  They had great stories to tell about the day, and are looking forward to summiting the Grand Teton one day.

  • Totally positive experience climbing the Grand Teton that exceeded my expectations. Guides Nate, Jed and Noah were professional, knowledgeable, with great senses of humor, and I felt totally safe and encouraged to push my limits of climbing to gain confidence and still have fun.  Also to meet Rob Hess and share conversation at high camp was very memorable. The trip was well organized and executed with care and precision. The equipment and accommodations were premier…very comfortable and well laid out. The food was good and satisfying. JHMG made this trip the best climbing experience of my life. Well done JHMG!
