JR Hmura is an AMGA SPI Guide who is licensed in NYS and I specialize in helping clients achieve their climbing aspirations. I’ve guided diverse clients around many cliffs of the Adirondack Park from welcoming sport routes overlooking beautiful lakes, long and hard routes in the Northern cliffs and fun adventures up multi-pitch on Rogers Rock, Chapel Pond Slab, Wallface and Poke-O-moonshine. No matter the age and expertise level, I promise you’ll learn something novel and have fun!
