Jeff Shapiro is a professional climber and pilot who has devoted his life to the mountains. Whether climbing on rock, ice, or flying above them, he strives for “full value adventure and self exploration.” Over the 30 years of his climbing related life, he finds the greatest rewards in focusing earned skill-sets towards attempting new routes in the greater ranges. A new route on the NW face of Ri Wu Qie Feng in the Daxue Shan range of western China and, the first ascent of the south face of Brammah II in the Kashmir Himalaya are two recent highlights.

Jeff is also a world class hang glider pilot, wing suit BASE jumper and a professional paraglider pilot and a father. When he's not climbing or flying, he's a philanthropist, conservationist and a master falconer. Jeff currently lives and trains in Montana with his 14 year old daughter and his wife of 23 years whom he recognizes as “the most tolerant woman in the universe”.
