Josh began climbing in 1999 and moved to Alaska in 2003. He chose Alaska because of the endless climbing potential it offers and the motivated outdoor community. Josh began teaching/guiding for Alaska Pacific University in 2005 and began at AMS in 2006. After graduating from Alaska Pacific University in 2007 Josh was hired on as adjunct faculty and has been teaching there ever since. At AMS Josh has helped guide numerous successful Denali ascents — including some custom speed ascents, and has taught many students the skills necessary to advance in outdoor pursuits. We are psyched to have Josh on the AMS team; he is strong, humble, professional and plays a mean guitar. Josh has a passion for vertical rock and the science behind the art of climbing.
