Joshua Lavigne

Discipline: Climbing Ambassador

Paquetteville, QC
Canmore, AB

For over a decade, Joshua has committed his life to climbing. He’s climbed in India, Pakistan, Argentina and the Canadian Arctic, and has established himself as one of Canada’s leading alpinists. He’s also an IFMGA Mountain Guide, which has allowed him to transform his passion for climbing into a career.

Joshua’s mountain adventures are defined by an interest in maintaining the high standard of the Canadian alpine tradition. He not only pushes the limits of what is physically possible but what is mentally possible.

Although Joshua’s home is now Canmore, his penchant for climbing was nurtured in a quiet corner of Quebec’s Eastern Townships. From a young age, he and his brother’s would explore the rolling hills of the Appalachians. Joshua eventually bought a one-way ticket west and has been enjoying the lifelong pursuit of adventure ever since.

“Climbing is more than a passion; it is a way of life.”
