Rock Climbing & Canyoneering Guide

Since Jerome’s first encounter with climbing fourteen years ago, it has been a driving passion in his life. It has taken him all around the Western U.S. in pursuit of adventures on rock as well as a few international trips.

He finds the red rock country around Moab to be some of his favorite and most peaceful climbing.

Some of his more noteworthy climbs have been multiple ascents of Yosemite’s El Capitan and a ski descent of the Grand Teton in Wyoming.

Jerome loves sharing his passion for the wilderness and climbing with others.

Since joining the Cliffs and Canyons team in 2012, Jerome has ensured each guest gains not only the accomplishment of safely navigating a canyon or climb but also a deeper understanding of the areas around Moab through his expansive knowledge of rock climbing and the desert.
