Noah Johnson

AMGA Single Pitch Instructor

Front Desk Staff, SumMAT Camp Expedition Leader

Noah is a senior at UVM studying Business and Emergency Medical Services. Noah got his start in climbing through ski mountaineering and hasn’t looked back. He is equally happy slotting cams on long multipitch routes as he is traversing the Knifes Edge on Mt. Katahdin with skis on his back. Noah is actively pursuing the guide track and plans to continue his development through the American Mountain Guides Association after graduation. Noah is a certified AMGA Single Pitch Instructor, Wilderness First Responder, Leave No Trace Master Educator and has taken AIARE 1, AIARE Rescue and a NOLS Outdoor Educator Mountaineering course. Noah has climbed extensively in the Shawangunk & Adirondack mountains of New York, Green mountains of Vermont, and White mountains of New Hampshire. He has taken multiple trips to Mt. Katahdin in Maine during both the summer and winter months. Noah has also spent time skiing and mountaineering throughout the cascades and rock climbing in Squamish, BC. Noah enjoys sharing the adventurousness of climbing with clients regardless of their experience or skill level. Helping others to accomplish their goals and develop an appreciation for the minutiae of climbing is what draws him to guiding.
