  • 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!

  • JHMG at Redrocks is everything a guide service should be. They have technically expert guides with a deep knowledge of the riches of Redrock. But the guides are also smart, friendly and warm. I try to take a day of climbing with them every time I pass through Las Vegas.

    — Greg Frux
  • My experiences with JHMG have been uniformly outstanding. Each guide that has worked with me over the years has taken a genuine interest in helping me advance my climbing. The levels of professionalism, expertise, and interest in teaching among the guides I have worked with has been top-notch.

  • Keith, Steve, and Aimee were three incredible guides. They were all patient and inspiring the entire trip. Although we didn’t get to summit the Grand, it was still one of the best experiences of my life.
