I started climbing with Jeanne on a whim last fall and have fallen completely in love with the sport.  I attribute this wholeheartedly to Jeanne’s energy, spirit, beautiful climbing skills and her ability to motivate. My daughter and I climb with her every week and it’s always a positive and super productive experience.  We have fun, we challenge ourselves, we laugh a lot, and Jeanne always makes the class interesting.  I am excited to further explore the sport with Jeanne in Central Park and wherever she leads the Bouldering Babes.

I attend the Women’s Bouldering Clinic which Jeanne runs and she is absolutely fantastic. Her classes are the reason I keep coming back – she is positive, energetic and great fun to be around. She teaches us good techniques and guides us to achieve our climbing goals whilst paying close attention to our individual strengths. I truly feel empowered after each class and I can’t wait to take part in all the other awesome Bouldering Babes activities planned over the Spring and Summer!

I’m new to bouldering and the knowledge, support, tips and encouragement Jeanne provides to me and the other women during our weekly women’s clinic has been so valuable to me.  She gives me the confidence to go further and achieve climbs I couldn’t do on my own.  Knowing Jeanne is there provides me with an extra boost and I feel that much safer pushing myself further.   I eagerly look forward to my weekly women’s clinic with Jeanne.  She gives the perfect amount of personal attention and adjusts herself to each individual’s climbing level.  I credit Jeanne with making bouldering my new favorite hobby – it’s my happy fix!!!

As a seasoned hiker, I could log double digit miles in a single day but wasn’t able to do a single push-up. I don’t like going to a gym (too boring), so I decided to try my hand at bouldering to bump up my strength a notch. I spent a few weeks struggling on my V0’s and I was
barely progressing. After about two coaching sessions with Jeanne, I went from V0 to V1 and flirting with the idea to climb those seemingly impossible V2’s in a few weeks.

She is an awesome coach – very friendly and social, while maintaining a certain amount of rigor. As a result of her effective instruction I managed to replace some self-limiting thoughts with more discipline, and I’m enjoying climbing more and more.

Every Wednesday I enjoy the Women’s Bouldering Clinic run by Jeanne. She is an awesome instructor. She encourages me to try challenging climbs, pushing me beyond my limits. I brought my high school students to the gym for a field trip and she did an excellent job of teaching them. Some of the students had never climbed before. She was patient and adjusted her instruction to accommodate their varied strengths and body types. I would recommend her as an instructor for your event or for private sessions. You are guaranteed to have a great time and leave feeling accomplished.

Jeanne is exactly what a climber needs to improve their technique, keep their spirits up, and stay motivated. As a seasoned climber who has experienced a variety of outdoor terrain and indoor gyms, Jeanne is well versed in the climbing industry and is passionate about what she does. Working at Steep Rock Bouldering, I come across many climbers who live and breathe climbing- and Jeanne is in that league. She is incredibly supportive of other climbers and has brought many people to conquer their fears and overcome mental (and physical) barriers.
