Jessy Ware is full of ambition and curiosity. Born and raised here in Joshua Tree, California, he grew up skateboarding and wrestling, both of which ignited his love for movement and self-expression and developed the mindset that mastery comes with making something a true study. Climbing is a dance, a fight and a meditation (with a touch of engineering) all in one- and for Jessy, it is an incredible vehicle not only for his physical, mental and spiritual composure but also for finding community, camaraderie and purpose in his life. Jessy took on Cliffhanger’s Apprentice Guide role during the 2018/2019 season and impressed us all with his genuine passion for climbing and natural teaching ability. Using climbing as a platform to teach is a dream come true and he continues to take courses and further his education and development as a guide. We are excited to see him flourish as a fully fledged guide and teacher. If you are lucky enough to climb with Jessy, you will be charmed by his warmth, engagement, and commitment to creating a magical day for you.
