“Markus Jolliff provides a unique blend of technical expertise and patience that make any climbing experience truly rewarding.”
Damion Estrada

“One of the best teachers of rock climbing techniques I’ve ever met.”
Jay (San Diego, CA)

“Markus Jolliff is an excellent rock climbing instructor. He is patient, flexible, professional, egoless, and listens to students' concerns all the while keeping the lesson plan on task. I have had the unique opportunity to take two classes from Markus -- the first for five days and the second for three days. The first class took me from not knowing anything about outdoor climbing to building anchors, completing a multi-pitch climb, and doing traditional leads. A few years later I took a second class from Markus to refresh my multi-pitch skills and hone my movement skills in bouldering. I don't climb as much as before, but 15 years later my foundation that has kept me safe while having fun comes from Markus’ classes.”
Rafael Chiu

“Markus and I first met during my trainings for the AMGA to become a Single Pitch Instructor Provider. For almost a year, Markus acted as my mentor in the program as I shadowed and co-taught with him during several SPI coursed and exams. Throughout our time together, Markus taught me much about instructing for this program and highly influenced me as a guide. Markus is a compassionate, patient and skilled guide. I believe his dedication to guiding and to his clients is commendable and something for all guides to aspire to.”

“I have been rock climbing in Joshua Tree with Markus for over a decade. He has encyclopedic knowledge of the park and a mastery of climbing its rock. Markus is a skilled and patient guider who is equally at home on terrain as he is guiding 5.crazy-hard. Markus is also a profoundly excellent teacher who delights in seeing his students and clients learn more about climbing, about the park, and about guiding. He has guided me when I was sending hard and he guides me now that I have a prosthetic. I have referred many of my friends to Markus and each of them has been delighted with his professionalism, wisdom, and attention to safety. I highly recommend Markus as a guide and as a mentor. It would be a shame to go to Joshua Tree and not have an experience with Markus...”
