We found JHMG through an article on Family Fun's website. Our kids (ages 6 & 13) have always wanted to climb and this was the perfect opportunity. Our guide, Eddie, was extremely knowledgeable, personable and encouraging. He focused on safety and basic techniques and after a few small practice climbs, we were all scaling cliffs. It was the highlight of our kids' trip. Thanks again, Eddie! We would love to come back some day and climb even more!

Jackson Hole Mountain Guides offers everything from rock climbing classes to multi-day climbs in the Tetons including the Grand Teton. A friend and I climbed the Grand Teton in early August, 2012 with JHMG and had a great experience. The guides were very professional with a focus on safety, education and constant encouragement. While we had some prior rock climbing experience, several clients had no experience on rock before the climb. Several climbers brought teenagers along for the climb and all reached the summit. JHMG teaches you the moves that you will need for the route you will be climbing maximizing everyone's chances for a summit attempt. I would highly recommend JHMG for a once in a lifetime climb of an iconic peak.

We climbed the Grand Teton with Jackson Hole Mountain Guides, with an experience that spanned three days of training, hiking, and climbing to the summit. We have used JHMG in other locations (Moab, Joshua Tree, Colorado) in the past, and were intrigued to see how they performed out of their home base. Bottom line: this is a top notch outfit, focussed on client safety and a great alpine experience. We had four people in our group - two novice climbers and two experienced climbers. Our guides (1 guide for 2 people) calibrated the experiences so it tested the novices, and engaged the veterans. Make no mistake - hiring a guide will get you to places you never thought you would reach, and you will do it in exceptional safety and security. JMGH provided gear, and an excellent "high camp" where we spent the night before our summit attempt. They carefully explained all of the rigors of the route, and what we should expect to experience in our climbing. We observed their careful checks and teamwork to review all of the equipment and we were impressed with the close communication between our guides. They read our ability and fitness levels perfectly. We made it to the summit of the Grand Teton, but agreed that if the guides had decided to turn back, we would have trusted their decision completely.
Climbing the Grand Teton is not for the faint of heart, but it is also not the only experience worth having with JMGH. If a family were at all interested in experiencing the challenges of climbing rock, this is a good way to do it. Some of their front office staff leave a bit to be desired in their warmth and interaction on the phone, but if you encounter them, they are not the people taking you up the mountain. Overall, Jackson Hole Mountain Guides is a highly recommended team of experts for adventurous souls. Happy climbing!

My sister and I booked a private climbing experience with JHMG for our trip to Boulder, CO, and we can't say enough positive things about this outfit. The company's representatives were very helpful with answering our questions prior to booking, and Nate, our guide, was great. It was my sister's and I's first time climbing outdoors, and he was very thorough with us in selecting our gear for the day, discussing safety, and advising on climbing techniques. I highly recommend JHMG.

We booked the "Kids Rock" package for our family of 5 (daughters 11, 9 and 8). Two of them are now completely hooked and can't wait to do it again. Our guide, Tom, was the perfect teacher for the day, who comunicated easily with us adults and the kids about saftey, fun and the great benefits of the sport.

He brought us to a wonderful area of the National Elk Refuge where we did a couple of climbs that were a bit challenging for first timers, but truely rewarding for the girls. The views were amazing and the girls even found a mouse jawbaw on the way back down to our cars.

I highly recommend JHMG to any family trying to get the most out of their day in the area.
