Ascend Guide Service was founded by Dr. Brannon Reed, whose love for the outdoors has led him to climb some of Mexico's tallest volcanoes and run along the Great Wall of China. The guide service is managed by Dr. Jack Yarnold, a veteran climber and caver who holds a doctorate in Arizona geology. We also have amongst our staff expert canyoneers, mountain bikers, canoeists, backpackers, cavers, and skiers who contribute to Ascend's virtually limitless reservoir of technical expertise and areal knowledge of Arizona. Our guide service also has a fleet of air-conditioned 4 x 4 vehicles, the latest equipment, and permits to some of the most spectacular canyons, rivers, and caves in Arizona.
Of course, Ascend Guide Service is fully insured. Additionally, we boast a perfect safety record, without a single incident report in the history of our guide service! Finally our guides are as friendly as they are skilled.
Ascend Guide Service can also take you on exotic rafting, mountaineering, sea kayaking, and trekking adventures to places such as Costa Rica, Mexico, Africa, Nepal, and Chile. Ask us for details on our unforgettable international adventures.
