JB started guiding when he was 21, initially working mainly in the French Alps, before joining the AC team in New Zealand where he has spent a number of summers, and more recently in the Himalaya. JB enjoys the expedition life and challenge that comes with high-altitude mountaineering, recently achieving the summit of Dhaulagiri (8,167m) without oxygen.
Fluent in English, French and Spanish, you'll find JB is an adept and engaging companion in the mountains. When he's not working or climbing you'll most likely find him flying his paraglider!
JB is an IFMGA guide and you'll find him guiding for the AC team in New Zealand, Europe and the Himalaya - ready to seek new adventures and he looks forward to sharing more great moments in the mountains!
