While the definitive sign of the change of seasons has come. I fired up the wood stove yesterday and I opened my first bottle of Beaujolais nouveau. That means rock climbing days are numbered and ice is on its way.

It was my 40th 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, climbwithjoe.com. 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.
