Our guide Joel Enrico did an outstanding and exemplary job. Climbing the Upper Exum Route was more mentally challenging than I had anticipated (I am not a climber), but I thoroughly enjoyed my journey up the Grand because of Joel’s competence, professionalism, words of encouragement and constant commitment to safety. He never once made me feel rushed and his communication with our rope team was exceptional. Once we summited and made our way down he was again committed to our safety and shared in a lot of laughs. Back at camp, Joel shined as camp chef, and seemed to carry out all tasks effortlessly. I cannot recommend him more highly as a guide. I truly believe my experience could have been way more scary and was less fun had it not been shared with someone like Joel, instead I left the mountain feeling strong, inspired and longing for my next JHMG mountain adventure.
