Jason Hurst

Owner and CDR "Chief Desert Rat"

This St George native grew up below the sandstone crags of Bluff Street, known then as "sandtown" spending much of his younger years exploring the wilderness that was literally his backyard. Peak bagging in the mountains of Wyoming and Utah during college at the University of Utah led him to climbing. Jason is a 20 year dedicated "blue collar" climber who loves sandstone splitters, good hikes in Zion Nat’l Park and dreams of climbing adventures all over the planet.
