My experience with JHMG was great. I would recommend this outfit to anybody I know who is interested in climbing the Grand. I contacted the office multiple times throughout my research process and I was received with great attitudes and useful information every time I called. One of the main reasons my fiancé and I chose JHMG was because of the 4 day trip. We came from Kentucky, and having the ability to stay at High Camp for three nights was a huge distinguisher compared to other guiding outfits in the area. It was also very convenient because it gave us time to train and acclimate at 11000 feet. Lisa and Cat were great guides who took time to cater the training to what we needed on the mountain. We felt comfortable performing the necessary maneuvers to safely and effectively climb. The atmosphere at high camp was great… I felt safe and well prepared the entire time I was under Lisa and Cat’s watch. All in all, I would recommend JHMG to any friend or family member who was heading to the Jackson area. Great experience, great guides, tons of fun, wonderful memories!
My experience climbing with Tracy at Red Rocks was amazing. She is safe, knowledgeable, and really fun to be with. I would highly recommend a climbing trip to sunny Red Rocks with JHMG. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to climb with Tracy! Thank you!!
My father and I returned to the Tetons, a special place for both of us, to summit Mt. Moran for his 60th birthday and 40 years after he had been rescued off the peak (August 1975) after an unexpected, heavy snow storm had trapped his party for 2 days on the mountain. This time we had good weather for most of the climb and a wonderful time. Phil Jones made this experience one for the books, giving us the technical support we needed to summit and return safely. His sense of humor (especially about my dad bringing the pack and boots he wore on the mountain 40 years prior), great cooking and calm demeanor made him an indispensable asset to us — not to mention his climbing and route finding skills. It was a fun trip and an epic return to the mountain for my dad. Thanks, JHMG and Phil for making this trip possible!
