Joe Hoch, ski mountaineer + mountain guide

I have a lot of experience ski touring and ski mountaineering; I wanted to branch out into alpine climbing to expand my technical abilities. Through Brittany’s guidance I was able to set up a training schedule to get my body and climbing muscles in proper shape without damaging tendons or other underused parts of my upper body. She also helped me work out healthier meal habits for better, quicker recovery. I spent the spring improving my climbing strength and experience, and by the end of the summer was able to climb my first fifteen-plus-pitch sport route and lead my first multi-pitch alpine route.
