Meet Our Mentors

Jordan Cannon

Now an Arc’teryx athlete, Jordan hit his stride as a rock climber when he moved to California for college, exploring places like Joshua Tree, Yosemite Valley, and the High Sierra.

After graduating, he carved out a career as a pro, sending big link-ups like the Yosemite Triple Crown, and climbing El Capitan’s “Golden Gate” in under 24 hours, making him one of the most advanced big-wall climbers in America. 

Among his peers, Jordan is revered for his work ethic, old-school style, and appreciation for the history of climbing, which inspires him to go out and have big adventures.

Outdoor Beginner & Trad Climbing Program

Throughout his career, Jordan has received mentorship from larger-than-life figures like Alex Honnold, Peter Croft, and Mark Hudon. He views his ShayrdAir program as a great chance to guide others as his mentors guided him.
