I teach courses in all the climbing disciplines including rock, ice, and mountaineering and all levels from beginner to advanced. Many of my programs are private requests from people or clubs so will not appear on this site. In addition to the climbing programs I also teach wilderness first-aid and avalanche safety courses. A large part of my work is with corporate/business groups as well. Go to teambuilding tab for more info on these innovative programs.

Please remember much of my schedule is private trips and do not appear here, contact me to chat about your personal adventure dream.



My rates are $250/person/day up to three people. Larger groups are $600/day. Private guiding or lessons are $400/day. If you have a “must do” climb you want to do, please give me a call.


All group sizes on CH climbing trips are small and so even a single cancellation can have a serious impact on the rest of the participants and the viability of the trip. For this reason we have the following cancellation policy in place and must strictly enforce it.

– Deposits are due at the time of booking.

– Final payments are due 30 days prior to departure.

– If you cancel within thirty days of the departure date you forfeit your deposit.

– It is recommended that you get trip cancellation insurance to protect yourself in the event of injury or illness prior to the trip.

– In the event Jim has to cancel for unforeseen emergencies, he will refund all deposits to the customer. He will have no liability for other losses or expenses.
