Josh is about as cool headed of a person as you will ever meet. He has climbed extensively throughout the desert Southwest as well as California, leading hard traditional routes or soloing. Josh is extremely competent in the vertical world, and has made quick work of challenging climbs throughout this region of the country. He is calm and understanding, putting any client at ease with his solid attitude, and obvious true and safe understanding of what he is doing.
Josh worked for the US Forest Service as a Wildland firefighter before joining CenterFocus, and resides in the remote wilderness of the Sierra Ancha. He has guided for many other Arizona adventure companies over the course of the past decade. When he is not leading clients through a technical canyon, you probably will not find him, as he may be establishing first ascents in a remote piece of Arizona backcountry, or simply wandering through desolate pieces of wilderness looking for his next objective.
