It was my 42nd anniversary as a  professional climbing guide in early March. I've never regretted it a day, I will always love to climb. As the saying goes, any climbing is better than no climbing. So I'm still here, offering all levels of technical climbing instruction year-round. I never appreciated my parents naming me Joe until I registered my website, All of my courses are custom designed for your needs. And still I say if you looking for quality and experience I'm your guide.  If you're looking for a deal or to check off climbing from your to do list I'm probably not. I'm here for those who have seen a mountain or cliff or a ribbon of ice either in person or in a photograph and thought I wonder what it's like to be up there. So if that's in your DNA get in touch. The mountains await.


We still have a little snow on the ground but it's melting fast. A month ago I thought I'd be in the rock within a couple of days but then came the snow. New England. I should be up and running all classes by the middle of April so let's climb.
