Joe fell in love with climbing in a bouldering gym in Wisconsin four years ago. Since then, he has travelled to Nevada, Arkansas, and throughout the Midwest in pursuit of standing on top of neat rocks. While studying Recreation Management at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse, Joe was able to expand his skill set by working as a trip leader and climbing guide for two years. Despite a start by doing 8 moves at a time on plastic, he has developed a love for plugging gear in tall cracks outside. When not climbing, Joe can still be found running uphill, biking and skiing downhill, and losing at online chess. While Joe is a passionate climber, his true love is for sharing the mountains with others. He hopes he can make your climbing experience the best that it can be. This will be his first summer with Acadia Mountain Guides.
