Splitting time between Montana and Germany, we primarily guide in the Rockies and Europe, although South America is a favorite destination. We specialize in multi-day technical rock and ice adventures at world class locations. Here is what a few of our guests have said before:



My wife and I were incredibly lucky to be paired with Aki for three days of instruction on self-rescue and alpine climbing techniques.  Both of us are educators and we immediately recognized the high level of instruction that Aki brings to his clients.  He is considerate, compassionate, highly skilled, patient and very funny.  Probably most important for us, he has an infectious commitment to safety and practicality when climbing.  He helped us learn new skills, correct bad habits, and overall improve pretty much every aspect of our technical skillset.  Over the course of our short course Aki found the perfect balance of direct instruction and practice such that, when we were done, we had learned far, far more than we had originally intended.  Several weeks after our course, we are still commenting on the singularly wonderful experience we had with him.  It was a pleasure to work with such a professional and we would be lucky to climb with him again.

Took the Alpine Rock technical with Aki Joy - fantastic day out in the Gallatins. Learned a whole lot, got on some awesome rock, and definitely boosted my confidence to keep getting after it! Can't recommend the guide, course, or the company highly enough.

Sam and Aki were the best! Anyone living in or visiting the Bozeman area in winter who wants to have an unforgettable and fun adventure should definitely contact MAG and setup an ice climbing day!

Aki did a great job of guiding my brother and me to the summit of Gannett Peak. He was patient and showed mastery of the skills needed to make the trek and climb safe. I was also impressed with Aki’s skills as a woodsman since trails and campsites would not have been evident to me if I were trekking alone.
