AMGA certified SPI Instructor + WFR
Like most climbers who come to California, Jordan values the freedom of wide-open spaces and has a deep appreciation for the mountains. Even though he started climbing in the gym at the age of 10. While growing up on the East Coast, he didn’t really hit his stride until he moved to San Diego in 2013. There, he began making trips to Joshua Tree and Yosemite Valley. While studying English and Art at the University of Saint Katherine, Jordan quickly developed a passion for the history and culture of rock climbing. He decided to move into his van in order to pursue a career as a guide and professional athlete. Jordan may not be the strongest climber in the world, but he stands out as a staunch traditionalist and cares more about adventure rather than difficulty, but that hasn’t stopped him from sending 5.13 sport routes or free-climbing El Capitan. Jordan enjoys all styles of climbing, but he still tends to gravitate towards long trad routes and big link-ups in Yosemite. He is always ready to get out there and get after it every chance he can get. With unending psych and an insatiable appetite for climbing, Jordan is constantly thinking of ways to “Go Big” and push his limits in the mountains. He is a certified AMGA Single Pitch Instructor and Wilderness First Responder and has plans to continue his education and take the AMGA Rock Guide Course in the future.

Highly recommend Fabi! He is super organized, friendly and safe. He was on time, prepared with everything we needed, fully explained everything we needed to know and made sure we felt safe during every step. He’s super encouraging and really knows what he is doing!
What an amazing experience! We took the beginners class, and so happy we did, Fabi was very knowledgeable, breaking instructions down step by step making it easier and fun to learn! After learning all the important safety steps we got to climbing right away, with fabi right there giving us pointers on the best route to take. I left class feeling more confident in my abilities to climb. Fabi has such a chill, friendly, and encouraging way of teaching, it felt like we were learning with a friend. I highly reccomend. Thank you for sharing your knowledge Fabi!
Had such an incredible time doing my first trad rock climbing multi pitch! Coach Jakob was extremely professional and taught my friend and I so much. We went up over 2,000 feet and got to the top of a stunning mountain in Idyllwild. He was informative and we felt completely safe the entire time. It was a fun and beautiful adventure. We would highly recommend Jakob and Chillino Rock Climbing Group for your upcoming adventures!
My partner and I just finished an intro climbing class with Chillino and it was fantastic! Our guide was Fabi and he was knowledgeable, friendly, encouraging and always put safety first. A great introduction to outdoor climbing with an emphasis on learning basics the right way and having fun, whatever your skill level. We started with an overview of equipment, a short hike in Mission Hills and a thorough training on using the equipment. We had the chance to do several lines at our own pace. All were a good challenge! Overall, a great class and highly recommend 🙂
Absolutely incredible experience! I hardly have any experience as a climber and Fabian did a great job at showing me the basics and making sure I knew how to safely and adequately climb. There was plenty of time for me to get my hands dirty and the location was beautiful! The team that came along was very positive and encouraging! Would definitely recommend Fabian's climbing options!
