JJ Justman, Mountain Guide, RMI Expeditions

JJ Justman has been a Professional Mountain Guide since 1995 and began working with RMI in 1998. Since then, he has developed a passion for guiding climbers on the world’s highest peaks from South America to Nepal. JJ will always claim his second home as Mendoza, Argentina where he has guided over 15 expeditions on Aconcagua and continues to perfect his Argentine Tango. However, JJ will always be found on Mount Rainier, his favorite mountain all summer long. JJ is a member of the Whittaker Mountaineering guide team.
