Josh Harris

Guide: International, Washington

Josh grew up in New Orleans, where the flatness and heat instilled in him a drive to explore snowy mountains. His adventures since have taken him from the White Mountains, the Tetons, the Sierras, and to Patagonia’s Southern Icefield. He has worked as a guide and instructor for Outward Bound for eight years in North Carolina and Patagonia. Josh loves to teach and share the experience of being in the mountains with others. He now calls Seattle home. When he is not out climbing, Josh might be reading non-fiction, breathing new life into his Geo, riding bicycles, or trying to balance upside down.
