Jessica Meiris

rock guide and helicopter pilot

Jes has been climbing for 26 years and guiding since 2005. She is known for her speed records in Yosemite, though more recently her life has shifted focus towards becoming a professional helicopter pilot. Her dream is to remain in the mountains, yet alleviate the physical demands of guiding, by flying for high angle rescue operations. A Colorado native, she also enjoys traveling, stained glass art, and is a classical pianist.
