  • Taylor was awesome! Really a true expert in evaluating best routes to take and making sure we had a good time and were safe

  • JHMG did a wonderful job making my Grand Teton adventure an experience of a lifetime. Taylor, my guide, was a true professional, very experienced and had my safety as a priority. Although we had to turn back much before the summit (deep snow and ice), Taylor pushed our climb as high on the mountain as safely possible. Well done!

  • My husband, myself, our 13 yr old son and 11 yr old daughter went out to Carter Canyon to learn to climb with Taylor and Porter. We cannot speak highly enough of these two guys and how great of an experience they provided. They were thorough, safe, great at going at a good pace for our family, and of course so fun and personable. We were expecting it to be fun, but it definitely surpassed our greatest expectations. We can’t wait to do it again and we will definitely be back with Mountain Guides and hopefully with Taylor and/or Porter. Thanks for some great family memories!
