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, 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.


It's truly summer, warm weather, hot weather, every few days a thunder shower and the river is perfect.  I went swimming in the Saco yesterday and the Swift the day before, I  have to say nothing in life could be better.  Warm rock, cool water.
