Jon is one of Britain’s foremost alpinists having climbed some of the hardest routes in the Alps and established several new routes in Alaska, Greenland and the Himalayas with both Rich and Al amongst others.
Jon lives and guides in Chamonix year round, thoroughly enjoying the guiding life. He specialises in guiding winter ice climbs, classic big rock climbs, alpine faces and ridges. He is also a very keen skier, having raced in the British Ski Mountaineering Team at World Championships and numerous other international competitions. To quote Jon:
“I have been passionate about the mountains and the environment since a young age. Through guiding I am able to share my knowledge and experience with my clients and help them to achieve their goals. If you’re seeking an adventure in some of the most beautiful wildernesses on the planet then look no further!”
Outside the guiding season, he mixes family life with personal climbing and works closely with his sponsors, being involved in design work, brand promotion and product testing.
