Jeff Martin has been part of the Pagan crew probably before he knew it. New to the climbing game Jeff likes his Wall Street Warriors sessions and Big Bend Badasses nights. Coming from California he’s had his share of rock from Joshua Tree and the Tahoe area and everything in between.
Andrew Jonas has been climbing in the Moab area for over 10 years. Originating from California, Andrew has been up the west coast from Smith Rock to Joshua Tree, Bishop to City Of Rocks as well as across the pond to Thailand! From sport to trad, multi-pitch to single pitch cragging, he is always looking for his next adventure. Some of his favorite places to climb are the Needles in California, Seventh Serpent in Longs Canyon or anything in the La Sals!
Miles is no stranger to adventure, coming from Northern New Mexico he was surrounded by the outdoors and was immediately taken by it all. Making several trips to Moab over the years he has decided to call this beautiful desert home and enjoy the endless splitters like so many before.
Amy DiMare, a Moab local since she was a young girl and has been fascinated with climbing for several years. New to the Pagan crew, Amy takes her knowledge and skill in photography and gives Pagan a different take on how we should look at the world. She enjoys most climbing when she can get it, bouldering days at Big Bend or Lost Earth also the days in Long Canyon or Indian Creek but mostly you will find her getting deep and dirty in off-widths around the Moab Area!
Brian Jonas is the owner of Pagan Mountaineering. He has traveled the world establishing FAs and bagging peaks. Originally from southern California, Brian spent lots of time mastering the stone with climbing partners like Dan Osman, Tom Gilje, and Jim Bridwell. You know they were loving the good life and impressing the world with their skills and impressive assents. In May 2000, Brian Jonas, Jim Bridwell, Brian McCray, Glenn Dunmire, and Terry Christensen established a new route on the east face of Peak 10,070′ (a.k.a. The Bear’s Tooth). The Useless Emotion (VII 5.9 WI4 A4, ca. 4,700′) was established over two weeks in May. A full account of their adventure can be found in The American Alpine Journal. Brian continues to live a life full of adventure.
Ralph Ferrara is a long time local and route developer that needs no introduction. If you have climbed in the desert, you have probably climbed one of his routes. With numerous first ascents on some of the most amazing summits, Ralph has done it all (but not only in the desert). He has been to most of the best climbing areas in the USA. Ralph loves it all, from splitter cracks and steep ice, to smooth limestone.
