  • John Willard

    John brings with him a contagious enthusiasm for climbing and instructing every time he heads to the crag.

John was born in Singapore and moved to Massachusetts at the age of 5. After 17 years in Massachusetts, he moved to Vermont to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Outdoor Education & Leadership at Northern Vermont University – Lyndon. His passion for climbing began with an introduction to rock climbing class and he was instantly hooked!  John loves both the mental and physical challenges that comes with climbing and he thrives when sharing that feeling with others who climb with him.

When John isn’t climbing, you can find him hiking and snowboarding around the White Mountains, enjoying the local breweries or cheering on the Bruins or Celtics! John’s future goals include being an AMGA certified Rock, Ice, and Alpine Guide.

John is a certified Single Pitch Instructor.
