What People Say

I consider Joe to be one of the best guides that I have ever worked with. His skills are superb in both his personal climbing ability and his rock and ice guiding techniques. He is an impressive teacher with clients of all ages. And his inter-personal approach with all people is honest and supportive.
Elaine Matthews
I’ve climbed all over the world from the Cordillera Blanca to the Sea cliffs of Sardinia, from Yosemite to the Gunks, and Joe Vitti is my favorite climbing partner and guide as he brings humor, skill, and an overriding sense that everything’s going to be fun. He’s the quintessential pro.
