Jasmin Caton

Rock Climbing Ambassador

Hometown

Hills, British Columbia

Resides

Nelson, British Columbia

After a childhood spent adventuring with her family in the mountainous backwoods of British Columbia, Jasmin caught the climbing bug at age 19. She moved into her car and followed the seasons from Squamish to Yosemite and all the crags in between. Her passion for climbing has brought her back to the mountains of BC where she seeks untouched alpine stone, wild camping and beautiful backcountry swimming spots. Jasmin’s day at the office typically includes instructing aspiring rock and ski guides for the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides or leading skiers through blower backcountry powder at Valhalla Mountain Touring.
