Great weekend climbing and learning new skills at City of Rocks with other like minded women. Rebecca Yaguda and Laura B were awesome, very articulate with instruction and supportive.
Wow! What can I say? Thank you! I never thought I’d climb again and you guys gave me the confidence and encouragement to do it again. Today’s hike was long, but the view was well worth it. Thanks for sharing a part of your life with me. Thanks again.
We love JHMG – we have climbed with them twice already. We could not have done this without our wonderful guides who helped us with the reservations and logistics. On both occasions, we had a unique, both challenging and fun experience. More importantly, it was very safe. So worth it!
The experience was beautiful, challenging, and memorable. Our guide was polite and accommodating, pushing me when I seemed to need it, lending an extra hand when required.
