Jack Templeton

Front Desk Staff, Youth Programs

Jack is a 2020 graduate from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science. He fell in love with Vermont ever since he went to school here and hasn’t left since. Except for those two years during the pandemic. He was antsy okay.

Jack worked as front desk staff and youth team coach in 2020 and now is back as of 2022 and did some more youth team coaching as well as front desk and assistant guiding. Jack is pursuing the AMGA rock guide track and enjoys nothing more than getting outside to go climbing with people. Whether that be introducing someone to a new aspect of the sport or romping up a multi-pitch with a friend. The love he has for introducing someone to climbing comes from his love of outdoor education. His favorite part of outdoor education through climbing is how much it empowers people and puts them more in tune with their natural surroundings. 

He has experience climbing in places like the canyons of Colorado, Vedauwoo, Joshua Tree National Park, a little bit of bouldering in Yosemite (he’ll be back), New Hampshire, and of course Vermont. When Jack isn’t rock climbing he enjoys mountaineering, snowboarding, ice climbing, mountain biking, backpacking, and finding summer swimming holes. If you are ever looking for someone to climb with outdoors, don’t hesitate to ask him because he will most likely say yes.
