About Joel Enrico
A Maine native, Joel started climbing in South Dakota just after high school and has since climbed throughout the Americas from sea-side first ascents in Newfoundland to the rugged peaks and big walls of Patagonia. He has climbed extensively in the US. Some of his favorite areas are Yosemite, Zion, Wind Rivers, and the Tetons. In the winters Joel can be found climbing ice and mixed routes or spending a day out touring. Joel started his guiding career in 2009 applying skills learned from NOLS, AMGA courses, and personal experiences. The lure of the Tetons has brought Joel to JHMG and he is excited to share his knowledge with guests over a good adventure. He spends most of his time guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, Beartooth’s and in the Red Rock for JHMG. Joel is a certified AMGA Rock Guide in pursuit of full IFMGA/UIAGM certification. He also holds a WFR, is a leave no trace trainer, and has completed the AIARE level 2 avalanche course.
