Vertical Adventures

Jeremy Kupferman

Certified Guide/Route Setter/Director of Adult Programing and Instruction

Jeremy began climbing on the seaside granite of Acadia National Park in 2002. The physical and mental challenges inherent to climbing were immediately attractive, and the ability to recreate in some of the most scenic and remote areas solidified his love for the sport. Since then he’s had the good fortune to climb around the country in a variety of disciplines. He started guiding in 2009, accumulating over 500 days of guiding and instructing technical rock & ice climbing, winter mountaineering, and technical rope skills.
